Default Are APB fights going to count on "official" records?

These will be professional fights.
The WSB was already an odd sort of grey area, but the APB would appear to be quite openly "professional"

So will it count on fighters official records?

they should be counted but they wont't, if governing bodies and boxrec and the like actually start recogising these bouts as proper professional bouts they are legitimising apb boxing and in doing so aiding a huge threat to professional boxing

Don King and other figures in pro boxing have came out given out about apb boxing as they know its a serious threat

aiba are literally the only organisation in the world that have the ability to monopolies boxing and turn it into a boxing version of UFC


tbh im a huge fan of what AIBA is doing and fans who keep hammering on about how they want one governing body, one world champion, the best fighting the best and proper rankings really should get behind apb boxing as its the only way to acheive this

The fights will surely count as professional bouts as far as AIBA is concerned. Not sure about the present organizations in "professional" boxing, but APB will be a threat to their concept.

It will be interesting.

Its simply a matter of who has the deepest pockets.

Can they stop fighters going to GBP, Di Bella or Top Rank etc?

Olympic style boxers ave been flooding into the traditional style "pro" ranks over the past few years.
Pretty much every major medallist of the last olympics has gone "pro", as well as the whole American olympic team.

The test will be to see if the AIBA can stop the flood into the traditional pro ranks.

Yes, I believe that's going to be one of the main objectives. If they were to eliminate the promoters etc from the sport (which would require serious resources and time) then possibly boxing could be among the more popular sports worldwide. For start, I believe that AIBA is planning to increase the popularity of boxing in countries where WSB is already fairly popular (such as Cuba, Italy, Kazakhstan, Russia to some extent and the new countries that bought the franchises) and capture the perception of what "boxing" is in those countries, then eventually try to completely take over.

At least their competition concept is far more better than we currently have in the present pro boxing.

This certainly seems to be the case.

Chances are it will take a long, long time for it to harvest the clout needed to do anything even remotely what one governing body would need to do, but the start has to come somewhere.

Might take a generation, but every 4 years they have the opportunity to get stronger and a lot bigger

At some weight classes already they have great line ups , there light heavyweight division has basically all the best amateurs in that wight division and looks great same with heavyweight and probebly super heavyweight
