New Delhi: Calling the suspended Gujarat State Amateur Boxing Association uncooperative, Boxing India (BI) on Friday said it would form a Dispute Commission to address the issues related to GSABA after the crucial September 11 elections.

"Despite Boxing India's initiative during this phase, the Gujarat State Amateur Boxing Association (GSABA) has been uncooperative and has railroaded Boxing India's efforts to shape the future of Indian boxing," BI said in a statement.

"In this vein, Boxing India has had to provisionally suspend the GSABA. Post elections, the newly elected body will form the Dispute Commission that will re-look into the matter and address the issue," it added.
