The International Boxing Association (AIBA) had provisionally approved Boxing India as the new governing body for the sport in the country in May this year.

AIBA had asked Boxing India to hold a General Assembly as soon as possible to conduct elections and appoint a new Executive Board to get full recognition.

AIBA had suspended the Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) in December 2012, after its then chairman, Abhay Singh Chautala, was controversially elected President of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).
