Lausanne, September 5, 2014 – Dr Ching-Kuo Wu, President of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), announced this week that he will run in the AIBA Presidency election once again for the upcoming new term.
After spending the last eight years at helm of AIBA, Dr Ching-Kuo Wu expressed his gratitude to all the AIBA Family for the support in moving the organization forward in achievements since the 2010 AIBA Congress held in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
In the official letter to the AIBA National Member Federations, Dr Ching-Kuo Wu said: “I am greatly proud of what was achieved in the last 4 years together with you. As a true team, we progressed together on all projects and accomplished all objectives which were set at the 2010 AIBA Congress. These achievements would indeed not have been possible without your faithful trust and love for our sport.”
This October will see the launch of the revolutionary AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) Competition marking the commencement of another historical phase for the organization and sport. APB is poised to elevate the status of boxing and therefore benefit boxers and aspiring young pugilists.
Within the AIBA President’s vision, the launch of the APB Competition is only a start to AIBA’s mission to “govern all levels of boxing worldwide.”
“Therefore, I have decided to run again for the AIBA Presidency to serve another 4 years and to continue enhancing all the AIBA programs together with you for more great achievements in all areas” – summarized Dr Ching-Kuo Wu in his letter.
The upcoming AIBA elections will take place during the AIBA Congress on November 14, 2014 in Jeju, Korea. —- AIBA
