Boxing out of Olympics?

Boxing has been included in all but one (1912) Olympics since first appearing 1904,  but now a big issue has been exposed by International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The IOC suspended payments to the International Boxing Association (AIBA) last year due to concerns about their operation-more specifically in regards of anti-doping, judging and refereeing- and has now decided to keep the same position towards AIBA, finding no satisfactory improvement in its activity.

So now AIBA must submit a new report by April 30th and faces the possibility of boxing being excluded from both the upcoming Youth Olympics of Buenos Aires 2018 and the Tokyo 2020 Games.
