A Rede Globo (também conhecida como TV Globo ou simplesmente Globo) é uma rede de televisão brasileira que iniciou suas atividades no dia 26 de abril de 1965, no Rio de Janeiro. During the 1920 Olympic Games in Antwerp, representatives from the national associations of England, France, Belgium, Brazil and the Netherlands met in a preliminary consortium for the foundation of an international boxing federation: The Federation Internationale de Boxe Amateur (FIBA). The official foundation has been celebrated on the 24th of August. Right after, international competitions appeared in the boxing arena, allowing amateurs to compete in well-known tournaments.In November 1946, a consensus was met to give way for the boxing governing body to regain the loss of credibility due to the behaviour of some leading officials in World War II. The FIBA was dissolved and the English Amateur Boxing Association in partnership with the French Boxing Federation decided to create AIBA; the Association Internationale de Boxe Amateur. The European Association is called EABA (boxing)Sixty years later, AIBA continued to govern boxing in the Olympic Games without using the word "amateur". Until now, amateur boxing has been present on all continents with continental championships as well as World Cups and World Championships organised by AIBA.
The International Boxing Association works in order to ensure victories for favored athletes at the expense of a fair competition.Since 2005 AIBA hold the Boxing World Cup.The AIBA has since 2006 been headed by Wu Ching-kuo.The International Boxing Union (IBU) was created June 1911 in Paris, France. It was an attempt to create a unified international governing body for professional boxing. Signators of the Protocol for the IBU were: Paul Rousseau (President of Fédération Française de Boxe et de Lutte) for France; Fred Tilbury (an Englishman, Master of Boxing, and President of Fédération Belge de Boxe) for Belgium; and Victor Breyer (President of Société Française de Propagation de la Boxe Anglaise), having an official mandate by the New York State Athletic Commission, and consequently acting on behalf of some American boxing authorities. Switzerland joined the IBU in November 1913.
The IBU suspended operations with the outbreak of World War I, but resumed action on February 5, 1920--this time headquartered in Paris. Eventually, by the end of 1942, the IBU was in the hands of the Nazis and Fascists, who transformed it into the "Associazione Pugilistica Professionistica Europea" (APPE). By December 1, 1944, the IBU/APPE was dormant. In 1946, from the ashes of the APPE, the European Boxing Union (EBU) came into being.A different organization based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA resumed sanctioning professional fights under the name International Boxing Union in 1996. While this IBU is indeed "international" and their "world champions" have come from countries such as Barbados, Guyana, Germany, and Hungary- though they often lack widespread recognition as the best fighters in their class. IBU titles are often a stepping-stone for fighters who progress to more prestigious titles.
One notable former IBU Heavyweight Champion was Shannon Briggs, who had his title stripped in 2003 after refusing to face quality opponents. Briggs went on to win the WBO title a few years later, after defeating Sergei Liakhovich in November 2006. The IBU also sports three notable former Lightweight Champions in Peter Manfredo Jr., Gary Balletto and Gregorio Vargas. Balletto was 29-1-2 before losing the IBU Lightweight title to Vargas in 2003. Balletto attempted a comeback in 2006 on ESPN's "The Contender". Vargas, a former WBC Featherweight champion and IBA Super-Featherweight champion, is perhaps most well known for his decision loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. for the WBC Super-Featherweight title. Manfredo was runner-up in the first year of "The Contender". Other notable fights of the IBU were the two IBU World Super Middleweight title fights of Scott "The Sandman" Pemberton and Omar Sheika that became ESPN2's "Fight of the Year" in both 2003 and 2004.As Categorias de peso do boxe são subdivisões nas quais são escalados os pugilistas, afim de tornar as lutas mais equilibradas. A pesagem oficial é realizada um dia antes da luta e, caso um atleta esteja fora do peso mínimo ou máximo, não estará apto a participar do combate.
