Boxing India Earns Official Recognition from AIBA15 September 2014
AIBA Executive Committee Bureau has formally recognized Boxing India as the provisional AIBA National Federation representing the sport of boxing in India. It was announced today in the official letter of the President of the International Boxing Association, Dr Ching-Kuo Wu, to the President of Boxing India, Mr Sandeep Jajodia.
“On behalf of the International Boxing Association (AIBA), I would like first of all to congratulate you and your New National Federation on the recent elections of all the Executive of Boxing India including you as its President,” – says the letter.
“Immediately after having received your letter with all results as well as AIBA’s Observers’ reports, the process of getting the approval of the AIBA Executive Committee Bureau to formally recognize Boxing India as an AIBA Provisional Member was conducted. In this regard, I am pleased to inform you that the AIBA EC Bureau has unanimously approved your AIBA Provisional Membership which will be further ratified by the 2014 AIBA Congress.”
Further AIBA President stated that, “I would like to emphasize the importance of managing Boxing India in the most transparent, fair, democratic manner and most importantly in the respect of all AIBA Rules and Regulations.” In this regard, a team of Boxing India Management was invited by AIBA President to have a learning session at the AIBA Headquarters to catch up on all AIBA programs and on how the sport of boxing should be managed in India as soon as possible after the AIBA Congress.
As of today, the Ad Hoc Committee established by the Indian Olympic Association will no longer be representing boxing in India and all boxing related matters including managing all level of competitions will be managed by Boxing India in full cooperation with AIBA. AIBA also wishes that Boxing India applies for a membership of IOA and receive its recognition following the IOC Charter in the very near future.
