AIBA might act more against IABF

The International Boxing Association (AIBA) might be forced to initiate more action against the suspended Indian Federation if its old guard does not take charge soon and calls for a re-election, which is essential to get the provisional ban revoked.

Suspended due to the International Olympic Committee’s ban on the Indian Olympic Association and for “possible manipulation” in its September polls, the IABF has been told to hold a re-election and amend its constitution to make it compliant with the AIBA statute.

The world body has refused to communicate with the new office-bearers, insisting on dealing with the old guard, which had Abhay Singh Chautala as the President.

Given AIBA’s stance, Chautala, who became the nominated Chairman of the new federation in the September polls, will have to take charge as President and initiate the steps that are being insisted upon by AIBA.

But that could jeopardise his position as the President of the Indian Olympic Association where he entered the fray because of his IABF position.

Sources said that AIBA might “suspend Chautala individually” if he does not take charge of the situation.
