Dimitris Papazoglou(RCM): Mr.Panagiotopoulos are you satisfied by the attendence in the seminar.
Mr.Panagiotopoulos: I am quite satisfied by the attendence and I have to admit that Hellenic Boxing Trainers Union did a great job. Greek boxing coaches have done such a good job so far, but we have to accept that the information from international world of boxing, that comes to them is insufficient.
RCM: Do you think that Olympic style boxing is heading to become small step to professionalism.
Mr.P: Don’t be confused. The first and basic step is the amateur Olympic style boxing, it’s one of the ancientest Olympic Games sport. Although professional boxing is growing up fast. President of A.I.B.A. Dr. Ching-Kuo Wu wants to establish professional boxing through A.I.B.A. Pro Boxing.
RCM: What is the thing that Hellenic Boxing needs to change, so it could be more competitive?
Mr.P: Hellenic Boxing Federation, Coaches, Referees & Jurges has to realise that the level of competition is constantly moving up. So they have to join forces, to move Greek Boxing one step forward and try to keep up with the international standards of the sport. This has to be done for the shake of Hellenic Boxing and our country…
