AIBA President congratulates OCA Vice President

06 Aug 2011
Lausanne, Switzerland: The President of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), Dr Wu Ching-Kuo, has sent a letter of congratulations to Gofur Rakhimov on his re-election as OCA Vice President. Mr Rakhimov, President of the Asian Boxing Confederation, was re-elected at the 30th OCA General Assembly in Tokyo last month.

AIBA President Dr Wu said in his letter: "This re-election shows how your dedication to sport on the Asian continent is appreciated. "It is my hope that this re-election will also provide a further opportunity to stengthen the development of boxing in Asia and that our joint efforts to promote our beloved sport will get the success it deserves."

Dr Wu, meanwhile, has announced AIBA's move into professional boxing. A new programme entitled AIBA Professional Boxing (APB) is to be launched and will feature both individual and national team bouts at national, continental and world levels.
