In response to the intention of the creation of the future body to coordinate the actions of the extra amateur, by some agents of the game, Carlos Luís told Angop that the incumbency of boxing, amateur or professional, belongs to his institution, and any other person who intends to do so independently would be breaking the law.

Carlos Luís also said the FABOXE does not agree with the creation of this intended body, since the law decrees that the creation of an autonomous professional boxing body should be under the FABOXE umbrella.

Therefore, he urged those, who intend to be a professional boxing promoter to request registration at this institution so as to be allowed to hold this sport competition.
