Statement by the International Boxing Association (AIBA)

October 26th, 2018 / IBA

Today the District Court of Lausanne dismissed the application for interim relief filed by Mr. Franco Falcinelli on October 4 2018. Based on a hearing which took place in Lausanne on October 22, 2018, the Court issued its decision to turn down both of Mr. Falcinelli’s requests to lift the provisional suspension ordered against him by the AIBA Executive Committee and reinstate his functions as AIBA Vice-President and EUBC President.

Given the decision rendered, Mr Falcinelli will further have to support the costs of the proceedings.
