Welsh Amateur Boxing Association board forced to resign

The Welsh Amateur Boxing Association board has been forced to resign over a “lack of confidence in governance”.
Sport Wales said it would not consider the organisation’s application for future public funding unless new directors were appointed.
It said it was clear the board was not following its own rules for recruitment, board meetings and other key decisions.
One former director said the ultimatum was “short-sighted” and “vindictive”.
David Francis, another former Welsh Amateur Boxing Association (WABA) chairman, said Sport Wales, which hands out funding, told him money would stop if he and his colleagues refused to step down.
