The International Boxing Association (AIBA) is to survey National Federations about holding a virtual Congress in December, according to European Boxing Confederation (EUBC) President Franco Falcinelli.

Falcinelli, writing in a monthly newsletter, said AIBA Interim President Mohamed Moustahsane confirmed the move after joining the continental body’s latest video-conference.

Holding the AIBA Congress virtually could be an alternative to further postponing the event into 2021.

“Dr. Moustahsane explained that in extraordinary circumstances, like the one caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is legally possible for AIBA to stage an online Congress and even hold Presidential elections in the same way,” Falcinelli wrote.

“Technical aspects must certainly be considered and the Interim President plans to survey all National Federations on this important subject prior to taking a decision.”
