Chicago 2016 Update: Int’l Olympic Committee member visits U.I.C. Pavilion, eats hot dog?

2016 Update

The Chicagoist reported today that Dr. Ching-Kuo Wu, an International Olympic Committee member and President of the International Amateur Boxing Association, was in town earlier this week to take a look a look at the UIC Pavilion at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

From Oct. 17-Nov. 1, the Pavilion will be the site of the World Boxing Championships and is the proposed site for all Chicago 2016 boxing events. Unfortunately, nothing has yet been reported on his findings.

There’s also been no word on if Wu stopped by Jim’s Original for a Maxwell Street Polish, but we’ll keep you posted…

…or something like that.
