The Curaçao Boxing Association was established January 1977 as “Curaçaose Amateur Boks Associatie” (CABA) to promote the practice of boxing in Curaçao. November 2014 the statutes and name were changed in “Curacao Boxing Association” (CuraBox).
The current board of this non-profit organization consists of; Edwin Baas (President), Andy Frans (Vice-president), Sem Klein (Treasurer), Erwin Kleiboer (Secretary), Huibertico Balentien (Commissioner). CuraBox has 15 competition officials (referees, judges, timekeepers, etc.) and there are 18 clubs active in boxing in Curaçao.
CuraBox is official member of AIBA (Association Internationale de Boxe Amateur), AMBC (American Boxing Confederation), CBA (Caribbean Boxing Association) and FDOK (Federashon Deporte i Olímpiko Kòrsou).
Unlike professional boxing (pro-boxing) there is only one world organization for Amateur Boxing, better known as Olympic boxing, and that is AIBA (Association Internationale de Boxe Amateur). Under the chairmanship of Edwin Baas, the country of Curacao received membership of the AIBA with CuraBox.
