WHEN SLOVENIAN BOXING FEDERATION PROMOTED DEJAN ZAVEC - IBF PROFESSIONAL BOXER - EQUAL TO OLYMPIC BOXERS ACHIVEMENTS, AIBA DIDN'T REACT. BUT AIBA REACTS IN THE CASE OF SMALLER DISCIPLINE VIOLATIONS (CASE OF DUTCH BOXING ASSOCIATION) - JUST WHEN IT WANTS. THE RULES ARE NOT THE SAME FOR ALL AIBA MEMBERS.

The AIBA Executive Committee Bureau unanimously took the
following decisions on February 22, 2011:
1) To put the case of the Dutch Boxing Association for review by the AIBA Disciplinary Commission due to serious violations of the AIBA Technical & Competition Rules and Ethics Code by having organized a competition - The Final Four on April 3, 2010 in Purmerend - among professional, amateur and kick boxers, this without headguards or vests, and despite a warning from AIBA.
2) To provisionally fully suspend the Dutch Boxing Association, meaning that no boxers, coaches or any officials are authorized to take part in any AIBA approved or controlled events and/or meetings and that the Association is not authorized to host any continental or international boxing events until a final decision by the AIBA Disciplinary Commission is made. This suspension is effective immediately.
