Default Re: PROS CAN COMPETE IN RIO OLYMPICS!! must turn back to am 1 year early.

pmsl, the amateur body is doing enough of its own damage, corrupt officals etc, and you think by throwing pros in the mix that it will fix it all up? no headguards etc, they have fcked themselfs from day 1 and the solution was the computer scoring system which isnt that much better so you rekon throw pros into the mix and it will help improve the sport? Its AMATEUR BOXING you moron, how the hell can amateurs get a break of even compete with season pros? sensible my ass, its a moronic idea to solve a moronic problem.

the ams cant beat the pros. bad ****en luck.

the olympics should be the best athletes in the world all competing.

its shouldnt be about giving someone a chance cause they have chosen to be second rate. the best vs the best.

it will lift the profile of boxing.

Thread starter swinger obviously knows **** all bout amateur boxing, AIBA & Dr Wu,

Like many others have said in the other thread absolutely no top professional will take a year outta their careers to box in the Olympics. You must be absolutely high if you think boxers like Donaire, Ward or Broner would forfeit their titles to box for a shit AIBA salary

I actually hope this plan goes ahead & fails miserably so Wu & all his corrupt cronies get kicked outta the IOC & AIBA gets completely re-structured

As mentioned in the other thread..

- For the 1st season only, APB will accept current professional boxers with limited terms and conditions
- APB boxers will be able to compete in the Olympic Games with limited terms and conditions

Current professional boxers eligibility for APB

- Current professional boxers who have a record of competing in AIBA events by representing AIBA National Federations
- Boxers who turned Pro within last 2 years
- Boxers who competed less than 10 or 15 bouts
- In exceptional cases, APB can consider to accept some boxers who can add much value to APB
- Total number of current professional boxers should be less than 20% of total APB boxers


APB Boxers Eligibility for the Olympic Games

a. Olympic Eligibility
- Age limit is from 19 34 years old
- Any AIBA (AOB) boxer who turned to APB within last 3 years
- All boxers from current professional organizations will not be eligible
- All APB boxers registered in their National Federations

The bold/italic paragraph above excludes "true" professionals from the olympics. (You just cannot take anything that comes out of AIBA/Wu's mouth at face value.) By AIBA definitions, an APB boxer is a professional and that's where the sports biggest stars will come from in their minds. AIBA's goal is to be the only pro organization out there.

Still, it's AIBA's intentions that I have listed and things aren't set in stone at all. I suspect the question about olympic eligibility will be up in the air for a while which will turn off many professionals that are otherwise sympathetic to the idea, from entering APB.

in my opinion, it just won't happen

The olympics in general need a big shake up
