AIBA's Wu Gets Upper Hand on Rivals With Latest Court Ruling

A Swiss court on Monday dismissed an attempt by opponents to amateur boxing chief Wu Ching-Kuo to seize control of governing body the AIBA.

Wu’s position was challenged by the AIBA's executive committee, who claimed the Taiwanese had led the sport to the brink of bankruptcy.

An AIBA statement announced that the Lausanne court's verdict confirmed Wu as amateur boxing's president.

Wu’s executive committee had passed a motion of no-confidence against his leadership and had turned to Swiss courts in July to approve a temporary administration, accusing the president of financial mismanagement.

But that bid for urgent provisional control of the AIBA was rejected, with Monday's ruling also coming down in favour of the organisation's current boss.

Wu's rivals had claimed that AIBA had racked up debts worth 15 million Swiss francs ($15 million, 13.1 million euros).

But Wu has insisted the body is financially healthy, accusing his detractors of mounting "a military coup".

In its statement after the ruling the AIBA announced: "The Court decision upholds the position of AIBA President Dr Ching-Kuo Wu and Executive Director Mr William Louis-Marie to validly represent AIBA and to continue to work in the best interests of boxing...”

IN OTHER NEWS:  Heralded prospects, featherweight Ruben Villa and junior lightweight Michael Dutchover remained perfect with unanimous decision victories this past Friday night in Ontario, California.

Ruben Villa (8-0, 4 KOs) of Salinas, Calif. displayed his superior talent by out boxing veteran Ernesto Guerrero (26-20, 18 KOs) of Mexico through six rounds. Villa swept all three scorecards (60-54) to continue an impressive start to his young career.

In what was perhaps his toughest test to date, Villa performed admirably and displayed his quickness by darting in and out of danger, all the while landing power shots to the head and body.

"We had a game plan for Guerrero, and we executed it perfectly," Villa said. "We gave him different looks and fought him from different angles. I don't think he ever got comfortable."

Villa is promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing.

Dutchover (6-0, 4 KOs) of Midland, Tex. knocked down Mexico's Carlos Flores (4-6-1, 3 KOs) in the opening round to get things going on his way to a unanimous decision sweep (40-35).

Throughout the fight, Dutchover snapped his left jab to set up an inside attack that left Flores bruised and battered by the fourth round.

"I had a lot of success working off the jab," said Dutchover, who is co-promoted by Banner Promotions and Thompson Boxing. "I'm happy with the win. I'll rest for a little, and then I'll be back in the gym working to get better."
