AIBA corrects ill-informed comments of IOA

Lausanne, May 22, 2014: AIBA would like to correct ill-informed comments made by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) Secretary General, Rajeev Mehta following the approval of Boxing India as provisional new AIBA member.

AIBA President Dr. Ching-Kuo Wu and the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) President, Narayna Ramachandran, met in Lausanne to discuss issues related to boxing in India.

AIBA received full support from the IOA with regards to the selection of the new AIBA member for India.

Further to this agreement, AIBA immediately informed the IOA of the AIBA Executive Committee decision of 14 May to accept Boxing India as the new National Federation.

This decision was simultaneously published on the AIBA website. The IOA recently confirmed receipt of such a letter and apologized towards AIBA for the misunderstanding created.

AIBA wishes to continue working with the IOA and sincerely hopes that this matter has now been cleared and settled. —- AIBA
