New Zealand has taken its place on the IBA map as International Boxing Association New Zealand’s Aotearoa (New Zealand’s Maori name) became a provisional member of the IBA following a postal ballot order by the board.

The IPA is expanding in Oceania and the country’s entry into the IPA framework represents this important development.

New Zealand’s reinstatement as a key member within the IBA is a testament to the country’s strong commitment to excellence in boxing. Aotearoa New Zealand’s provisional membership of the International Boxing Association marks a new chapter in the country’s boxing story, reflecting both a commitment to developing local talent and upholding the sport’s international standards.

The IBA’s expansion strategy in Oceania aims to foster a vibrant boxing community across the region. The addition of a new national federation is a strategic move to improve competitive opportunities for athletes in New Zealand and promote the sport. It is hoped that this temporary membership will enable greater sharing of knowledge, resources and experience between New Zealand and other member states.

The International Boxing Association of Aotearoa New Zealand has demonstrated its governance, ethical compliance and clear vision for the development of the sport. This membership gives New Zealand boxers the opportunity to participate in promoting IBA events and programs.

IBA General Secretary and CEO Chris Roberts OBE emphasized the importance of the move in his statement: ‘The International Boxing Association’s inclusion of New Zealand is in line with our wider vision to strengthen boxing in all countries. Oceania has strong boxers and successful coaches and we are committed to supporting their growth and development and ensuring every country has the opportunity to excel.’

As a provisional member, the new national federation will work closely with the IBA to ensure that all standards and requirements are met.

The OCBC Oceania Junior and Junior Boxing Championships, which will be held in Tahiti from July 1 to 7, 2024, will become the first event of the newly formed national federation.

The IBA has been instrumental in ensuring the success of this championship by providing essential financial support of US$100,000 under its Financial Support Program (FSP). This funding underlines the IBA’s commitment to nurturing young talent, supporting its federations and promoting the sport of boxing worldwide.
