Hope for Indian boxing, elections to set up new body on May 8

first_imgNew Delhi, Apr 16 (PTI) The days of turmoil in Indian boxing seem finally headed for an end with the countrys administrators today deciding to hold fresh elections on May 8 to put together the Boxing Federation of India as the new national body. In a meeting of the stakeholders in Kolkata, it was unanimously decided to hold the elections on May 8, a good six days before the end of the deadline set by the tough-talking International Boxing Association (AIBA). “The elections will be held on May 8 and the process will have the support of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA). The venue of the elections is still to be finalised. The nominations will now be sent to the International Boxing Association, which will take a call,” a top official present in todays meeting told PTI. The race for the Presidents post is likely to be a three-way showdown between Delhis Rohit Jain, who narrowly lost out on the Secretary Generals position in the now defunct Boxing India, and former Secretaries Rakesh Thakran and Rajesh Bhandari. The Secretary Generals position is set to be contested by Jay Kowli, a member of the ad-hoc committee currently administering the sport, Goas Lenny DGama and Jammu and Kashmirs Dr Nirmolak Singh. While DGama has been a former Chairman of the Ring Officials Commission, Dr Singh has been the official doctor of the Indian boxing teams in the past. “All contentious issues have been sorted with near unanimity now. The clauses related to giving two votes to every member unit has been worked out. Besides the zonal representation has also been agreed on. So, it looks to be smooth from now and a new boxing body will take shape,” the official said. The development would come as massive relief for the countrys boxers, who are facing expulsion from the Olympics if a new federation does not take shape by May 14. Only one Indian boxer — Shiva Thapa (56kg) — has qualified for the Rio Olympics so far with two more qualifying events — one each for men and women — still to go.
