To ensure that boxers have a strong voice in shaping the work of World Boxing, the two athlete representatives on the Executive Board will be supplemented by an Athletes Committee made up of three men and three women.
The Athletes Committee will be responsible for representing the views of boxers worldwide and providing advice, guidance and opinions to World Boxing. Any current boxer over the age of 18 or one that has competed internationally in Olympic-style boxing within the last ten years is eligible to join the Committee.
The Athletes Committee will be elected by their peers at World Boxing’s first Senior World Championships, scheduled to take place in 2025. Prior to this, the Committee will be appointed by the Executive Board based on recommendations from its membership.
