British Amateurs Under Fire With AIBA's Recent Ban

England's top amateur boxers face being barred from this October's World Championships in Kazakhstan after their governing body, the Amateur Boxing Association of England, was handed an international suspension by AIBA.

The international boxing body said today it was provisionally suspending the ABAE from competition for what it described as "serious violations" of regulations.

"In accordance with the International Boxing Association (AIBA) Statutes, the AIBA Executive Committee unanimously decided on July 18th 2013 to provisionally suspend the Amateur Boxing Association of England (ABAE) for serious breaches of the AIBA Statutes/Bylaws and the AIBA Technical & Competition Rules," read an AIBA statement.

"AIBA could not tolerate the serious violations committed by the ABAE.

"The Executive Committee also referred the matter to the AIBA Disciplinary Commission for its further investigation and decisions regarding the future of ABAE within AIBA.

"The provisional suspension prohibits the participation of all ABAE boxers, coaches, officials in future AIBA and Confederation Competitions."

British amateur boxing has been dogged by political in-fighting since Derek Mapp, chairman of the British Amateur Boxing Association, of which ABAE is a constituent part, was voted out of his post in May despite five medals at the 2012 Olympics.
