WBC calls for immediate change in amateur boxing

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBC has called on the AIBA to immediately change their system of simply counting blows to decide amateur fights because “that’s not boxing” and undermines the different styles in the sport.”It is not possible for a boxing match to be won by 7 to 3 when hundreds blows connect and don’t count for anything,” said the WBC in a press statement.

The WBC also protests the decision of Ireland’s John Joe Nevin over Mexican Oscar Valdez in the 2012 London Olympics saying that Valdez dropped Nevin with a hook to the liver and battered him from pillar to post only to lose the round 7-4. They say the Mexican Federation should have made a strong protest as did the U.S. and three other countries who had boxing results later changed on the desktop.
