(OCT 17) Statement by IFBA
President Judy Kulis on the outcome of the Oct. 15 IFBA boxing
matches held in South Korea.
“The IFBA will file a formal protest on behalf of Jolene Blackshear
and Lisa Brown over the questionable outcomes delivered by judges
after their respective bouts on Oct. 15 in South Korea. The IFBA is
committed to fair and equal judging throughout the world and the
results from both bouts are clearly open to review.
Although the IFBA has not yet received an official letter of protest
from either fighter’s camp, the IFBA exists to ensure the fights it
sanctions are above reproach and will act of its own accord. The
IFBA will be sending tapes and detailed reports to the Korean Boxing
Commission (KBC) with a request for immediate attention to the
The IFBA, and women’s boxing, has always been treated fairly and
with high regard in South Korea, and I anticipate a fair and
impartial review by the KBC.”
