The International Boxing Association (IBA) opened online registration for participants of its next Extraordinary Congress, which will take place on 25 September 2022. As was previously announced on 15 July, the IBA Board of Directors decided that the Congress will be held in Yerevan, Armenia.
The main agenda of this Extraordinary Congress is for the National Federations to decide on the necessity of the new Presidential elections.
IBA President Umar Kremlev said: “I encourage all National Federations to register for the upcoming Congress because in our fight for good governance, IBA strives for absolute transparency when it comes to important decisions such as a Presidential election.”
Earlier, Azerbaijani websites spread false information that allegedly boxing federations of a number of Western countries appealed to IBA, demanding to hold the congress in another place. According to the websites operating under the control of the Azerbaijani government, the alleged letter as a reason stated that Armenia is an ally of Russia.
