Ching-kuo tells The Associated Press it’s all part of his plan for
Olympic boxing to look more like the pro game. He wants the return of
the pros’ 10-point scoring system that takes into account every aspect
of a fighter’s skill, not solely his ability to land clean punches.
computerized scoring system currently used in amateur boxing has been
widely criticized for warping the sport into something resembling
fencing with gloves.
Wu wouldn’t speculate on when the change can occur in the amateur sport, but says “we are on the way.”
