Boxing and wrestling remain the only sports that carry an amateur status at the Summer Olympics due to safety concerns. In 2013, professional boxers became eligible for Olympic participation provided they had fewer than 15 paid bouts under their belt.

This new proposal has been put forward by the President of the International Boxing Association, Wu Ching-kuo, during a commissions meeting in Manchester. If the rules are ratified in time it would give national federations the chance to select whomever they want to participate.
