 USA Boxing has just been handed a three-month suspension for statements by one of its board members, Hal Adonis, to the effect that boxers are better off if they were abused as children and that half of women boxers are lesbian. As usual, it's the kids who suffer.
Aren't all the national sport governing boards chartered by the US Congress? Can't Congress revoke its charter and award it to a new board? In the meantime, let the young men and women box unofficially like they've been doing since we came down from the trees, without permission from the adults that failed them so miserably. And let some of the more powerful teenage boxers show Mr. Adonis what they think of him.

Wow, this forum is completely dead when no one responds to posts like the one above mine nor responds to Joe Ray's post regarding the passing of Manny Stewart. By the way, it looks like the suspension has been lifted and as horrifically bad as USA Boxing is, laugh at AIBA for criticizing anyone.

I am disgusted, nothing more to say. We need to start teaching and promoting boxing at the city, club level.
