AIBA

Boxing coaches in England today warned an international rule preventing cross over between amateur and professional codes is having a terrible effect at the grassroots level and may see future generations lost to the sport.

Many coaches believe regulations put in place by the International Boxing Association (Aiba) have had negative consequences at professional/amateur gyms across the UK with some youngsters (many of whom dream of emulating Amir Khan and Carl Froch) becoming disillusioned and falling out of the sport.

Aiba (world boxing’s governing body; runs international amateur competitions) has stated that professional coaches are banned from assisting fighters during its competitions. Since the Amateur Boxing Association of England reformed and became England Boxing in 2013, it has had to comply with these worldwide regulations.

There are gears that:

  • Coaches are forced to prioritise either professional or amateur boxers
  • Grassroots boxing may suffer
