AIBA Says Indian Boxing Federation Does Not Have Validly Appointed Members

Livid with the suspended Indian Boxing Federation's antics, Int'l Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) President Dr. Ching-Kuo Wu has said the world body will now work with the Indian Olympic Association to "get to a position where it will be possible to hold new elections" for the IBF, according to the PTI. In a "sternly-worded missive" Wu has stated that the IBF "does not have any validly appointed officers" at the moment. Wu said in a letter, which has, among others, also been addressed to India's representative in the AIBA, exec committee member Kishen Narsi, "The process has become increasingly difficult due to the opposing positions adopted by various factions within the IABF" (PTI, 10/22).
