    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- The International Boxing Association has reassigned its
    executive director in the middle of the Olympics after an examination of the
    judging and refereeing at the games.AIBA assigned Karim Bouzidi to a new role
    within the organization Thursday, but declined to elaborate on the
    reason.Boudizi has been AIBAs executive director under President Wu Ching-Kuo
    for the past 15 months. The Frenchman is also the CEO of the World Series of
    Boxing, a team-based professional league run by AIBA.Bouzidi, a former boxing
    manager who joined AIBA as an executive in 2012, was in charge of operating the
    Olympic boxing tournament. Those duties will be handled for the tournaments
    final four days by Franco Falcinelli, a vice president of the executive board
    and the president of the European Boxing Confederation.The governing body
    dismissed an unspecified number of referees and judges from the Olympics on
    Wednesday after determining that less than a handful of Olympic bouts had been
    incompetently officiated. AIBA declined to name the judges or to state the
    reasons for their dismissal from Rio.The latest decisions taken emphasized AIBA
    will not shy away from its responsibilities and will continue to ensure a level
    playing field and a fair and transparent sport, AIBAs statement read Thursday.
    It is of paramount importance to protect our sport and its (refereeing and
    judging) community, whose integrity is constantly put into question.After a
    quiet opening week in Rio, a handful of questionable decisions threw yet another
    Olympic boxing tournament into turmoil with widespread condemnation of the
    judging and refereeing. AIBA moved from punch-counting points system to a
    professional 10-point scoring system for this Olympics, and most bouts had gone
    off without complaint until two conspicuous results favored Russian fighters
    early this week.Russias Evgeny Tishchenko won the heavyweight gold medal with a
    decision over Kazakhstans Vassiliy Levit, who was more aggressive and more
    exciting throughout the bout. The vocal pro- Levit crowd booed Tishchenko
    heavily when he was announced as the winner, and again when he received his gold
    medal.Ireland bantamweight world champion Michael Conlan then lost a
    quarterfinal decision to Russias Vladimir Nikitin, who took tremendous damage
    and bled profusely from a previous cut during their bout. Conlan ripped off his
    vest, made obscene gestures at the ringside judges and then denounced AIBA and
    Russia as conspirators in corruption.Nikitin was unable to continue in the
    competition after clinching a bronze medal. He was medically disqualified
    Thursday morning from his semifinal bout against Shakur Stevenson, who advanced
    by walkover to Saturdays final against Cuban gold medalist Robeisy
    Ramirez.Several other fighters have complained vociferously about their losses
    in the last few days of the Olympics, as they invariably do in every
    international amateur boxing tournament.AIBA declined to say which bouts were
    among the handful cited as their basis for removing the unnamed referees and
    judges. Officials from both of the most high-profile disputed bouts were still
    working at the Olympics on Wednesday.To me, its back to what we were in 1988,
    when I fought in the Olympic Games and Roy Jones got robbed in the final, U.S
    coach Billy Walsh said. I havent seen it as bad since then. What happened after
    that? The computer came into the equation. Maybe we need to go back to the
