Fight body bans Romanian, Thai officials
The International Boxing Association has suspended Romania’s
federation and senior Thailand officials for breaking disciplinary
rules, but allowed the two countries’ fighters to continue
The governing body, known as AIBA, says it barred Romania from
international amateur boxing for two years because suspended leader
Rudel Obreja continued in office.
AIBA says Thai federation president Taweep Jantararoj is
suspended from all duties for two years. Other Thai officials got
one-year bans from international boxing.
AIBA says suspensions don’t apply to athletes, coaches, referees
Romania and Thailand are among 13 members which challenged AIBA
president Wu Ching-kuo before his re-election last year.
