Professional boxers to fight in Rio


Professional boxers have been cleared to compete at the Rio Olympics after the AIBA voted to change the sport's constitutional.

Member federations voted in favour of the rule change which will allow professional boxes fight at the Olympic Games in Brazil later this year, with 26 places set to be made available at a qualifying event in Venezuela next month.

The plans have been widely criticised, with Northern Ireland's Carl Frampton claiming the decision is ridiculous

"They're two different sports. It's like a badminton player playing tennis," Frampton wrote on Twitter.
