PRESIDENT OF INTERNATIONAL BOXING ASSOCIATION (AIBA) RESIGNS – TOO BUSY TO WORK DUE TO LEGAL PROBLEMS

OCCRP reported on 17th July that Gafur Rakhimov says he doesn’t have time to do the job as he is overwhelmed with lawsuits, being accused of organized crime and drug trafficking.  The Uzbek former boxer and coach is the subject of US sanctions due to his alleged involvement in heroin production and drug trafficking.  He became president of AIBA at the end of 2018.
