AIBA Secretary General Mr. Istvan Kovacs visited the Balkan Boxing Championships which took place in Zagreb, Croatia where he met with the leadership of the National Federations of the Balkan region.
‘We had a fruitful discussion on the current situation and the boxing development. I appreciate all efforts that the Balkan Presidents and Secretaries General do to keep boxing in the region at a high level. What is more, I believe that the AIBA Men’s World Boxing Championships in Serbia will raise the bar significantly,’ Mr. Kovacs said.
‘AIBA’s reform process is in a good way, which is noticeable for the National Federations. We will help them on a daily basis to ensure progress in each country,’ he added.
