AIBA - PROFESSIONAL BOXERS COMPETING AT THE OLYMPICS

Following the announcement that AIBA are to permit professional boxers to compete in future Olympic Games, the British Boxing Board of Control confirm their objection to such a proposal.

It is the belief of the British Boxing Board of Control that such a move is against the spirit of the Olympics, disrespectful to the many GB Amateur boxers who, throughout the Olympic cycle compete around the world in qualifying tournaments and ultimately dangerous.

It is the hope of the British Boxing Board of Control and many within the professional Sport in Great Britain and throughout the world that AIBA reconsider such a move that is not beneficial to the Sport as a whole.

Lord Brooks of Tremorfa DL

It is with great sadness that the British Boxing Board of Control reports the passing of former Chairman and President Lord Brooks.

Lord Brooks' contributions to Boxing in Great Britain were immense and his contribution to the Sport in Great Britain have enabled the British Boxing Board of Control to maintain its position as one of the leading Boxing Commissions in the world.

Jack will be sadly missed by those who knew him and the Sport has lost one of its great characters.

Boxer Tyson Fury

The Stewards of the British Boxing Board of Control have interviewed Tyson Fury on Tuesday, 26th January 2016 following recent comments made in the media.

Tyson Fury has made comments in the media that have caused offence to members of our society. However, there is no suggestion that he has broken the law by exercising his right to freedom of expression. In such circumstances, the Stewards of the British Boxing Board of Control have been advised that it cannot interfere with his basic human rights.

Having said that, the Stewards of the Board have made it clear to him that as World Heavyweight Champion, arguably the holder of the most prestigious title in sport, there are heavy responsibilities upon him to avoid making controversial, non-boxing comments. He has assured the Stewards that he understands the responsibilities upon him and has expressed regret that he has caused offence to others, which was never his intention.
