I don't think people fully understand my post. The changes are already in place. Amatuer boxing will no longer have head gears, and will have judges scoring on a 10 point must.



A computerised scoring system designed for the boxing competition at the London 2012 Olympics will be scrapped after the Games as the sport’s governing body seeks to encourage fighters to win with style.

Ching-Kuo Wu

International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) president Ching-Kuo Wu is determined to bring the amateur ranks more in line with professional boxing and he believes kicking out rigid computer scoring is essential.

Headguards for male boxers are also set to disappear after London while the governing body will launch AIBA Professional Boxing (APB) in 2013 which will mean amateur boxers can earn money from the sport without turning to the established sanctioning bodies of the professional game.

Can see what your saying just think your applying to average amateur comp not Olympic standard , I think the min age is 17 with most that make it are 18-25 , you can win world pro titles at that age , 8 round finals would be a good compromise .
