Patiala: The under-pressure Indian boxing Federation on Wednesday said it will conduct a re-election and has amended its constitution as instructed by the International Boxing Association (AIBA) after the world body threatened a blanket ban on the country's boxers and coaches following the October World Championships.

"We are ready for elections. We have already incorporated whatever changes AIBA suggested in our constitution and have sent the draft to them yesterday," IBF Secretary General Rajesh Bhandari, who is here to oversee the selection trials for the World Championships, told PTI.

"They (the AIBA) are free to send an observer for the elections. As soon as we get the approved constitution draft from AIBA, we would call a meeting of our general body to fix up the date of election," he said.
