Christophe De Kepper, the director general of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), has "guaranteed" that boxing will take place at 2028 Los Angeles Olympic Games.

"Yes of course we can guarantee that boxing will be on the program in Paris and LA 28," said De Kepper.

The news comes on the heels of the International Boxing Association (IBA) being expelled from the Olympic Movement at an Extraordinary IOC Session.

The IBA, which regulated amateur boxing for decades, has been suspended since 2019 and were precluded from regulating boxing in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games - and they were also blocked off from taking part in the Paris 2024 Olympic games.

They were suspended after concerns over judging and refereeing, financial stability and governance.

According to the IOC, IBA head Umar Kremlev, in charge since 2020, failed to address the concerns.

World Boxing, a rival amateur boxing organization, was created a few months ago - with the ultimate goal of reaching a deal with the IOC to organize future boxing tournaments at the Olympics.

An IOC Task Force organized the boxing tournaments in Tokyo, and they will also handle the tournaments in Paris.

IOC president Thomas Bach said: “We do not have a problem with boxing, we do not have a problem with boxers.

“On the contrary, we appreciate the boxers for living the values of their sport. If we had a problem with boxers there would not have been a competition in Tokyo, there would be no boxing competition in Paris.”
