Boxing Canada high-performance director Daniel Trepanier resigns

·1 min read

MONTREAL — Boxing Canada high-performance director Daniel Trepanier is resigning effective immediately.

The sport organization made the announcement today in a news release.

The International Boxing Association launched a review of Trepanier and Boxing Canada earlier this week amid claims of a toxic culture within the federation.

The move came after the release of an open letter to Sport Canada from dozens of athletes.

It called for an independent investigation and Trepanier's resignation.

Boxing Canada says it will engage provincial sport organizations in the coming weeks to strike a search committee to guide the process to hire a new high-performance director.
