Established in 1911, the irish athletic boxing associations (iaba) main role is to develop, foster and control amateur boxing in the 32 counties of ireland. The iaba is committed to provide the environment, in which support and opportunities given to our athletes, coaches and clubs excel, and in doing so to increase participation and improve performance in irish boxing. (iaba) is the national governing body for amateur boxing on the island of ireland, developing and controlling the sport. Founded in 1911, the iaba operates from the national stadium in dublin, the only purpose built amateur boxing stadium in the world. Amateur boxing is a variant of boxing practised at the collegiate level, at the olympic games, pan american games and commonwealth games, as well as many associations. Contemporary amateur boxing utilize headgear, mouthpieces and point-scoring type of boxing gloves, containing a white scoring area at the knuckles. The participants are largely from the less privileged areas of the country. I have always found the people more interesting than the sport but more recently ive begun boxing to try understand the sport from the inside. I dont think ive ever met a more warm and helpful community of people.
