AIBA 'removes' Headguards for women including youths and children from 1 January 2018
by Michael O'Neill
January 21, 2017

 International Boxing Association (AIBA) Press Releases are noted more for what they do NOT tell us than what they do but even so the fact that there was no formal Press Release following December’s Executive Committee meeting in Switzerland did ring ‘ alarm bells’ in several countries. Such meetings usually agree any major changes in the sport but nothing was heard until a New Year message to the faithful from AIBA President Dr Ching Kuo Wu on 9th January and even that did not mention removal of headgear.  Full Story

Debuting professionally at the tender age of 14 (February 27, 2010), Dayana "Diamante" Cordero is certainly a "Diamond in the Rough."
Cordero, born on December 18, 1995, in Caucasia, Columbia, fell in love with the sport at a very early age. By the time she was 7 or 8 years old she was already boxing with the local boys in her town. The lack of financial support in her household forced Dayana to work but boxing was her passion and at the age of 14 she turned pro defeating a much seasoned fighter in Maria Andrea Miranda.   Full Story
