For the allegations of corruption judges, AIBA recalls the former accreditation of the world champion


Former gold medalist Stanimir Petrov on Tuesday, after the World Body ruled that its claim of corruption by judges was not confirmed, was accredited by the International Boxing Association (AIBA) at the World Championship.

Bulgarian, a 54kg gold medalist in 2014, accused a judge of corruption after losing a victory in the 57kg world championship championship in Sonia Chahal, India on Monday. Sonia won the match in a 3-2 split decision.

AIBA's decision to cancel Peter's accreditation came a day after her coach Petar Yosifov Lesov was expelled from the corner for throwing a bottle of water inside the circle after the match.

In a statement issued on Tuesday, AIBA said she had not respected her opponent, judge, referee, event organizers, and the world subject, by her behavior.

He said the incident would also be handed over to the AIBA Disciplinary Board for review.

"AIBA has decided to prolong the cancellation of accreditation of Bulgarian boxer Stanimira Petrova (57kg) due to its unacceptable and unsporting behavior," AIBA Executive Director Tom Virgets said.

"She showed inappropriate behavior at the end of her event, and her actions are a reflection of her coach, who does not respect and seek to damage the credibility of this sport," he added.

Virgets said that any claim should be backed up by proof that she did not.

"We have to change the culture of our trainers and athletes who learn that it is acceptable to scream" without proof "whenever they lose the match, and our trainers and athletes have to develop good sporting habits," said Virgets.

"AIBA does not tolerate such behavior against the AIBA values ​​and the AIBA Code of Conduct."

The top official also said the tournament was still "under the highest standard of equal conditions".

"AIBA has recently introduced many guarantees to ensure fairness in the competition and I am very satisfied with the results," says Virgets.
