No respite for Indian boxing as International body denies approving constitution

The IABF was left flummoxed with Secretary General Rajesh Bhandari, who had claimed of getting AIBA's approval for the constitution, saying that it is a bolt from the blue. The AIBA called the constitution a "work in progress" as of now and threatened more dire consequences.

New Delhi: Threatening the IABF with an extended spell of suspension, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has rejected the barred body's claim of getting approval for its amended constitution, calling it a "work in progress" for the time being.

"The IABF constitution, which was completely revised by the AIBA Legal Department, was only so far sent to the AIBA EC Member from India, Mr Kishen Narsi, on February 11, 2013," AIBA President Ching Kuo Wu said in a letter to India's IOC member Randhir Singh.

"The constitution is still a work in progress and is subject to further consultation between AIBA and the relevant parties in India," he added.
