• Boxing withdraws from World Combat Games


    LAUSANNE: Boxing on Thursday (Friday in Manila) withdrew from the World Combat Games amid a bitter row between the organizers of the event and the International Olympic Committee (IOC). The International Boxing Association (AIBA) also suspended its membership of Sport Accord, which organizes multi-sport events like the Combat Games but whose leader Marius Vizer made a scathing attack on IOC chief Thomas Bach last month. Boxing is the latest of a number of sports, including athletics, to quit Sport Accord over the dispute.
