Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia − The International Boxing Association (AIBA) has once again renewed their partnership with TSA as their media partner for the AIBA Open Boxing (AOB) events in 2015 and 2016. TSA has been distributing the media rights for AOB since 2010 and is set to increase TV distribution and revenues across the globe.

Leading up to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015 and 2016 is looking to be an exciting year especially with the World Championships (Men’s and Women’s) and Olympic qualifying tournaments by continent which will see successful boxers qualify for Rio 2016.

AIBA is committed to develop the sport worldwide. A major change is the age limit for AIBA boxers. The former age limit for Elite boxers (Men and Women) was previously 19-34. The upper limit now moves up to age 40 in order to provide boxers with longer career opportunities. The other age categories are Junior (boys and girls) 15-16 and Youth (boy and girls) 17-18.
