It's too late to remove it from Tokyo, they should have done it in 2016 or at least before June 2017, when they announced the programme.Removing the sport in November/December 2018 would be unfair to athletes. The IOC should strictly supervise the competition in Tokyo and demand that AIBA fix their problems by 2020 in order to be included in Paris 2024, but they must take a final decision 4 years in advance.

I agree.

Keep for 2020 unless AIBA completely goes nuts.

Make decision on 2024 by middle of 2021.

Organizing a corrupt competition is equally unfair to the athletes (at least for those that aren't from privileged nations).

As I wrote, the IOC must supervise the competition, removing the sport is not the only alternative to a corrupt competition...cancelling it in November (instead of making everything possible in order to have a regular competition) means that a good number of people have unnecessarily wasted two and a half years of their lives.

I completely agree with my Friend INTERISTA (and evidently fan of the Olympic boxe): hopefully both Olympic boxe and Inter will come back ... "a riveder le stelle" (Dante, what a genious ...!)

Which still sounds better to me than wasting 3 or 4 years (depending if you get robbed at qualifiers or Olympics proper). :)

I'm assuming they will remove them pretty quickly if the IOC keep threatening.

I voted YES but only because this is a traditional sport and not because of AIBA. I'm agree with all of you who say that AIBA must change...and there are a lot of changes to do... (personally I don't think this federation will be changed soon, same for scoring rules, unfortunatly).
