Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “Russian president wins boxing body vote of confidence”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Russian national Umar Kremlev, the president of the International Boxing Association (IBA), will continue in his post after delegates expressed a vote of confidence in his rule at an extraordinary Congress meeting in the Armenian capital of Yerevan on Sunday.

As confirmed in an IBA statement, the Congress voted against holding new elections after the meeting was delayed by an hour due to a power outage.

Delegates cast 106 votes against the motion, while 36 voted for it and four abstained out of 146 eligible national federations.

As the Boxing Federation of Ukraine was suspended for government interference ahead of the Congress, it could not cast a vote on Kremlev’s continuation after writing to IBA members on Thursday calling for him to step down or be voted out of power.

Kremlev is expected to hold his position for the full four-year term he won in December 2020 after winning the vote on Sunday.
