"BBC Newsnight has uncovered evidence of secret payments of millions of dollars from Azerbaijan to international boxing organisation World Series
Whistleblowers say that WSB's chief claimed the money was in return for a guarantee that Azerbaijani fighters would win two boxing gold medals at the
London 2012 Olympics.
The boxing organiser at the Olympics, AIBA, admits an Azeri national paid $9m (£5.9m) to one of their competitions."
Ok, its not a huge surprise, but it is more confirmation about what is really going on.
It does make you wonder about how much of what happens on this planet is a staged event simply happening for the benefit of someone to make money.
We all speculate about this on ATS. We are getting more and more confirmation that these suspicions look like being correct.
This news report would explain a lot of questions over olympic boxing in the past.
The latest response to this will be a thorough investigation. I'm sure some poor sap will be labelled the scapegoat, be publicly humilated, loose his
job and then we can all forget this ever happened and be content in the knowledge that the Oympics is not corrupt like everything else. After all FIFA
were able to clean up their mess so easy.
