AIBA asks BI to wait before it resumes functioning

The International boxing federation (AIBA) has asked Boxing India to wait for a review from its recently appointed ad-hoc committee before it can pursue any matter related to the administration of the sport in India

 “In order to ensure that there are no further obstacles to the growth and development of the sport of boxing in India we have decided to create an Ad Hoc Committee, led by Mr Kishen Narsi, to evaluate Boxing India and report to the AIBA Executive Committee on its current status,” said AIBA president Ching-Kuo Wu said in a letter dated June 23 and addressed to Boxing India acting chief Meren Paul.

“Once the Ad Hoc Committee report is received, AIBA will proceed to review and consider any issues raised by it. Therefore, I ask that you wait for contact from this Ad Hoc Committee in order to proceed with further steps and I trust that you and the other members of Boxing India will provide your full support and cooperation for the benefit of the sport and the boxers.”

AIBA also noted with disappointment that even after its recognition to BI, it failed to meet its goals and a vote of no confidence was passed against the elected representatives. 

"I would like to thank you for your letter dated June 17 as well as attached meeting minutes of Boxing India Executive Committee (of BI). In view of the current BI situation I must say that it is quite disappointing that after AIBA’s recognition the federation could not meet its goals, with your council having a vote of no confidence in the elected representatives,” Wu wrote.
