Breakaway governing body World Boxing says it is holding talks with 25 to 30 prospective new member nations as it seeks to be the International Olympic Committee's preferred partner to run boxing tournaments at the Los Angeles Games in 2028. World Boxing is seeking to supplant the International Boxing Association, which was expelled from the Olympic movement last year after a long-running dispute with the IOC over IBA finances, ties to Russia and concerns about poor or unfair judging of bouts. Formed last year, World Boxing currently lists 27 full members including the United States, England, Germany and the Philippines.

Oleksandr Revtiukh fires a vicious hook at the seasoned fighter facing him. Only two years ago he had enjoyed a comfortable civilian life as an electronics technician abroad, before he returned to Ukraine to sign up and fight the Russian invasion. Revtiukh, who has a prosthetic leg, is one of tens of thousands of Ukrainian combat amputees who are having to adapt to a new life as civilians or back in the military.

For Tyson Fury, size will count for everything in his fight with Oleksandr Usyk to crown the first undisputed heavyweight champion since 2000. Usyk, a former cruiserweight, might be giving away around 50 pounds (22.7 kilograms) to Fury, who — at 6-foot-9 (2.09 meters) — is 6 inches (15cm) taller and has a bigger reach of 7 inches (nearly 18cm). Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, Fury complimented Usyk’s boxing skills but said the size difference between the two unbeaten fighters would be too big for the Ukrainian to overcome in the May 18 bout in Saudi Arabia.

The International Olympic Committee on Wednesday said it needs to find a suitable new international boxing body by early next year or else risk boxing dropping out of the Olympics for the Los Angeles Games in 2028. The IOC stripped the International Boxing Association of the right to run the Olympic boxing tournaments in Tokyo in 2021 and Paris this year. On Tuesday, the Court of Arbitration for Sport upheld the IOC's decision to formally de-recognize the IBA, in effect cutting it out of the Olympic movement altogether.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport has upheld the IOC decision to remove the International Boxing Association from the Olympic family. The court announced Tuesday that it dismissed the IBA appeal because the organization “had not complied with the conditions set down by the IOC for recognition.” The Russian president of the IBA, Umar Kremlev, said in November they would appeal at Switzerland’s supreme court if they lost their appeal at CAS, sport's highest court.
