Boxing likely to be excluded from Olympic Games

The International Olympic Committee has put planning for the Tokyo 2020 boxing tournament on hold in a move that could see the governing body AIBA frozen out of the Games over a governance dispute.
The IOC said in a statement it had also launched an investigation into the International Boxing Association after AIBA submitted a progress report focusing on governance, financial management and sporting integrity.
Boxing has featured in all but one of the Summer Olympics since 1904 with Muhammad Ali, Joe Frazier and Anthony Joshua among those to have won gold medals and gone on to claim professional world titles.
