Women may be included in the International Amateur Boxing Associations new professional league.
The AIBA would consider extending the league after women made a stunning debut at the London Olympic Games, president Wu Ching-Kuo said on Tuesday.
The governing body for amateur boxing wants to stop losing fighters to the professional ranks every four years and plans to offer fighters a living and another shot at Olympic gold through its own professional league.
A new organisation, AIBA Professional Boxing (APB) is the vehicle for stopping the exodus from men's amateur boxing. Wu said he would examine whether to do the same for women as soon as the London Games were over.
"Next year we are going to have the APB. Why not for women? The level is so high, the popularity so high
so why not?"
Taiwan's Wu, who was at the forefront of the drive to remove boxing's status as the last all-male sport at the Summer Olympics, described as fantastic the atmosphere during Monday's headline fight between Ireland's Katie Taylor and Natasha Jonas of Britain.
He would keep the video footage to show other female boxers how good they could be.
Last week he suggested he would be pressing the International Olympic Committee to increase the 36-strong quota of female competitors for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro.
He would not strip the men of any berths to let in more women.
"With the performance here, with the reaction from the media, from the Olympic family, the Olympic Games department in the IOC, all of this gives a very strong reason to ask for more (women) nand hopefully the IOC will seriously consider," he said. Tags: Amateur Boxing
