The president of the World Boxing Council sharply criticized the International Boxing Association on Thursday for its intention to allow professional fighters to compete in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The WBC’s Mauricio Sulaiman said AIBA ”does not have a clue of what boxing means and represents.” The head of pro boxing’s most prominent governing body also predicted ”dangerous mismatches between experienced professional fighters and amateur boxers” if the pros take AIBA’s invitation.
