AIBA President Mr. Umar Kremlev met with the President of the Hungarian Olympic Committee, a two-time Olympic silver medalist in fencing, Mr. Krisztián Kulcsár.
Mr. Kremlev expressed gratitude to Mr. Kulcsár for the organization of good training conditions for athletes and holding the international tournaments at the highest level in the country, as well as attention to boxing.
‘It is AIBA boxers who should decide the faith of the association. My task is to show deeds not words. There were no such reforms, as we did last two months, during many years,’ AIBA President said.
‘I will not listen to negative or wait for help. I will work hard and prove my love of boxing with actions. AIBA is an independent organization defending the interests of athletes and the National Federations, which develop boxing. I meet with National Federations in the whole world, listen to their issues, and looking for appropriate solutions. By the end of March, we will have something to show and talk about. First and foremost, we will solve the R&J issue and the debts’, he added.
Mr. Kulcsár stressed the importance of cooperation with the international sports organizations.
‘We would like our athletes to show their best results at the Olympics. For us, it is extremely important to have boxing in the Olympic program. We believe in the success of your work on AIBA reforms. It is our common interest to bring boxing back to the Olympic family,’ stated Mr. Kulcsár.
