‘The formation of the IBA Professional Boxing Committee marks a significant milestone in our pursuit of excellence, with advancing our professional boxing theme globally. We are committed to ensuring that our champions and athletes receive the recognition that they deserve, and those opportunities related directly to our National Federations,’ IBA President Umar Kremlev stated.

‘The IBA Professional Boxing Committee will be a key operational asset within our organization, to regulate those matters connected with IBA Champions’ Night events and other related projects. IBA will drive hard to develop those professional boxing themes, alongside our collective and joint effort within our core business of amateur boxing events. A comprehensive ranking system along with those competitive bouts will shape a brand-new landscape in the professional boxing world, so our boxers will have a chance to compete for those well sort after IBA titles. In line with these developments, we have some exciting plans to be announced very shortly that will enthuse our members across the globe,’ IBA Secretary General and CEO Chris Roberts OBE said.
