IABF attracts AIBA wrath

The suspended Indian Boxing Federation has infuriated the International Boxing Association (AIBA) yet again and it is the pugilists who are paying the price for their refusal to act according to the world body’s diktat.

The AIBA is livid with the IABF for giving out details of the Indian boxers’ international schedule even before getting the world body’s clearance.

The result is the cancellation of a training-cum-competition tour of Cuba from May 27 to June 17 where 20 boxers were scheduled to go.

“India was expected to take part in Cardova Cardin, a training-cum-competition programme at Havana, Cuba from May 27 to June 17, 2013. However the team would not be travelling to Cuba as the tour has not been sanctioned by AIBA,” the IABF said in a statement.
