Dear colleagues, friends, members of National Federations and all boxing fans!
I sincerely wish you a Happy New Year!
The outgoing year has been challenging for the whole world, including our boxing community.
The pandemic has made adjustments to our plans, but we have passed all the tests with dignity.
Thank you for the trust you have shown me by electing me AIBA President. I am confident that together we will make AIBA great again – in the interests of athletes, coaches and, of course, boxing.
I know that all our problems will be knocked out and we will become absolute champions in the quality and effectiveness of the reforms.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, but, most importantly, we work together, and I feel your help and support. Our strength lies in unity and solidarity.
On the eve of this marvelous winter holiday, I want to wish you and your families health and peace.
May love and prosperity reign in your homes and every new day bring happiness.
Happy New Year!
