Boxing wants more women’s fights at Olympics


LAUSANNE: The International Boxing Association (AIBA) wants to see more women fighting at the Olympic Games, its president Wu Ching-Kuo said. There were gold medals in three weight divisions in London, but the AIBA wants the International Olympic Committee to agree five categories between 48 kilos and 75 kilos. Wu, who stood against Thomas Bach for the IOC presidency in 2013, said a proposal has been made to the Olympic leadership and a decision made just after the Rio Games. The next women’s world championships, the Rio qualifying tournament, are in Astana, Kazakhstan in February.
