Yesterday the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) dismissed the Kazakhstan Boxing Federation’s request for a provisional stay of the AIBA elections.
As per the earlier media release provided by CAS, the Kazakhstan Boxing Federation, filed an urgent application for provisional measures seeking a stay of the AIBA elections. With the order to dismiss this application, CAS has ensured that the AIBA Congress and AIBA elections will continue as planned.
Furthermore, in regards to the on-going procedure between Serik Konakbayev (Kazakhstan) and AIBA, AIBA has shown goodwill and cooperation to ensure that this case be fast-tracked. As a further sign of fair-play, while CAS is making its expedited review, AIBA has further provided exceptional consent to Konakbayev to pursue a campaign of his own volition under the same conditions as the approved candidates who have fulfilled the eligibility criteria.
