The investigation announced that qualifies for the 2016 Games were the “practice ground” in which control strategies were “adjusted”.

This prompted “ineffectively prepared” R&Js being “went after by the individuals who had degenerate thought processes”.

In Rio, the leader chief chose all of the R&Js. Degenerate individuals from the draw commission would impact the choice cycle, “with the goal that the ‘right’ R&Js were in a situation to administer the session as coordinated”.

In an assertion, president Kremlev: “not really settled to guarantee that fighters get a reasonable battle. This assurance is exhibited by AIBA’s reasonable obligation to uncovering reality and following up on it.

“We should now cautiously analyze the report and see what steps are expected to guarantee equity. What is significant is that we ensure the instruments are set up to show that outcomes are beyond reproach.”

We will likewise accept legitimate exhortation with respect to what activity is conceivable against those found to have partaken in any control.

“There ought to be no spot in the AIBA family for any individual who has fixed a battle.”
