Mr Ching-Kuo WU

Wu Ching-kuo was the president of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), a post he held from 2006 to 2017. Heresigned from his position in November 2017.

Having been a member of the International Olympic Committee since 1988 (and thus representing the IOC in Taiwan,participating as Chinese Taipei),he was elected to its executive board in 2012.

After serious allegations of financialmismanagement and accounting irregularities were made against Wu, a motion waspassed against him by AIBA's executive committee at a meeting in Moscow in July2017. Members of AIBA's governing body called for anExtraordinary Congress within 3 months to table a no-confidence motion againstthe AIBA president. It set up an Interim Management Committee to prevent Wufrom having any further financial control over AIBA.

Wu claimed that this was "politicalmaneuvering" and refused to step down. However, with the boxing world inuproar over the financial mismanagement under Wu's watch, he had no option butto resign in November 2017.
