Paris 2024


Recommended Posts

So now there's chatter about moving boxing from the covered court at Roland Garros to the exhibition hall at Porte de Versailles that was formerly set to host basketball prelims. Needless to say, the French Boxing Federation isn't happy about the idea. Seems ridiculous anyway. Why move boxing when the newly covered Suzanne Lenglen Court is more than adequate . . . unless there's other plans such as moving handball out of Lille so basketball prelims can be held there. Perhaps handball to the Suzanne Lenglen Court if that's even possible?

I also quite like him myself - I’ve had a bit of a man crush on him since he called out our PM for being the lying waste of space he is.

Also confirmed that boxing will remain at Roland Garros and not be moved to Hall 6 at Porte de Versailles.

The International Boxing Federation direction and leadership have really messed things up for boxing even now being at Paris 2024 at all.

The high risk now is that the IOC will expel boxing if IBA don’t allow free and fair elections …. and the latter is not looking likely.

What an arrogant, stupid and poor excuse for an international sporting federation this IBA is, seriously. 

I really feel for the athletes preparing for Paris 2024 boxing qualification and who are now staring horrified at the real possibility of their Paris Olympic dreams imploding in front of their eyes.
