CK Wu re-elected AIBA President

02 Nov 2010
Almaty, Kazakhstan: The 106 member countries represented at the 2010 Congress of the International Boxing Association (AIBA) today voted for Dr. Wu Ching-Kuo from Chinese Taipei to serve a second four-year term as President. The result returns Wu, a member of the International Olympic Committee and AIBA member for 25 years, for a further four years. He has headed the association since 2006, when he put an end to the tenure of former president Anwar Choudry from Pakistan on a reform ticket. 

As the only candidate for the election, Wu was voted in by acclamation as the delegates gave him a standing ovation.

“With your confidence and trust I will continue to give my commitment to you,” he said.

“We have a lot of work. Although we have achieved many things, you have all demonstrated that you want the new AIBA; you want continuous reform; you want a very clean, honest and transparent organisation.

“I give this commitment to you: I will do everything I can to make sure we are a clean organisation. We have a lot of prospects, a lot of vision and a lot of new work ahead of us. I need you to really unite with me. No organisation can survive and have strength if it is internally divided.”
