Obviously, the cardholder who put it in place and, if anything, indirectly and objectively, the Company to which it has endorsed and / or is solely responsible for this behavior. Any responsibility can and must be ascribed to the Italian Boxing Federation, which cannot eg even be aware of the personal choices of each individual card holder until he is aware of them “.

This behavior is in clear contrast with the rules sanctioned by the Coni Code of Sporting Behavior (art .5) ‘that the FPI acknowledges, sharing its spirit and content. For these reasons, the FPI reserves the right to submit this behavior to the Federal Justice Bodies so that, in the appropriate fora, their opposition to the Statute and Federal Regulations can be assessed and adopted the appropriate sanctioning measures also to protect the image of the Italian Boxing Federation.
