In Morocco, as part of the Golden Belt Series tournament, an open press conference was held with the IBA leadership and several global stars, including Roy Jones Jr. The press conference was held to address the USA Boxing Federation’s boycott of the World Championships to be held in India and Uzbekistan.

Predsjednik IBA-e je objasnio da IBA podržava sportaše iz svih zemalja svijeta, te namjerava pomoći svakom boksaču:

“My opinion, as well as that of the organization and the majority of boxers, is that organizations that urge their athletes to boycott the Championships are akin to hyenas—they have no right to prevent their athletes from competing in the World Championships. Those who actively attempt to do so are even worse—representation for every individual country’s culture is important to us, and we will protect all of our competitors. Those who deprive athletes of participation have no place in management.”

Kremlev je nastavio: “Oni dužnosnici koji se miješaju u sportaše nemaju mjesta u sportskom svijetu. Međunarodni sportski događaji poput našeg stvoreni su da ujedine svijet. IBA se zalaže za mir i harmoniju među svim boksačima, a time i njihovim zemljama - svi sporovi se rješavaju u ringu.

“Također pozivam sve svoje kolege u svim sportovima da spriječe te dužnosnike da zauzmu mjesta u vodstvu, čime se izbjegnu sukobi i osigura da se više međunarodnih sportskih natjecanja može održati bez brige o beskrupuloznim dužnosnicima, štiteći vaše sportaše i interese, kao i IBA radi.”

Kremljev je također zahvalio medijima.

“I also wanted to thank the media. 50 percent of any sport’s success is due to the media, so I want to thank you for actively sanctioning a wide range of sports, and I ask that you focus more on sports and less on politics. We truly appreciate your work and professionalism and wish you good health.”

Kremlev later remarked: “It is not the USA, nor its athletes and its people, but the elected officials who come and go that are currently the cause of many of these issues. This is not the opinion of the athletes and the people. Everyone should hear the opinion of people and athletes. There are a great number of different nationalities in boxing and we are united in our approach. We fully intend to help American boxers participate in the World Cup.

“At its most recent meeting, the IBA Board of Directors made many positive decisions in defense of boxers, discussed the issue of financing athletes and federations. The primary message we have is that the IBA is not just another organization, but is rather one boxing family, united under one roof.”

Predsjednik IBA-e Umar Kremlev je na tiskovnoj konferenciji uoči finala Svjetske boksačke turneje, turnira serije Golden Belt u Marakešu u Maroku, istaknuo kako se reprezentacija SAD-a ne bi trebala mučiti zbog odluka aktualne političke administracije.

“This decision doesn’t belong to the athletes themselves. None of the sports administrators or politicians in the world is entitled to deprive their athletes of their dream to become World Champions. Boxers dedicate their entire lives to the sport, while administrators and politicians come and go. Those who are doing this to our athletes are worse than scavengers; their behavior violates the integrity of sport and culture. The IBA will do its utmost to help athletes from the USA to participate in the World Boxing Championships including financial assistance, if needed. For this, we have our Financial Support Programme. We will fight for each and every country to give them a chance to participate in our tournaments representing their flag and anthem. Administrators and politicians who make these decisions for the athletes shouldn’t be involved in any sport,” President Kremlev said.
