AIBA approves IABF's amended constitution

Indian boxing

Meanwhile, the invitation for participation in the Asian Junior Championships for men, scheduled from March 10 in Philippines, has also arrived.

"Only coaches and boxers will go but the good thing is that boxers will not suffer anymore. Now these boys will have an aim. Earlier, they were training without a sense of direction," he said.

Earlier, in a letter to the IABF, the AIBA said that its Executive Committee decided to allow participation of Indian boxers in international events despite the continuation of suspension of the IABF.

The AIBA, however, made it clear that no official will be allowed to accompany the boxers in any international competition.

The development came after India's IOC member Randhir Singh spoke to AIBA President Ching-Kuo Wu and followed it up with a letter, stating that the Indian boxers should not suffer due to IOC's ban on India.

In India's sporting history, the country's athletes have never participated in any competition under the flag of an international entity.
