New Delhi:

The Indian Boxing Council (IBC), a licensing body for professional boxers in a country which has Vijender Singh among others on its roster, has been granted affiliation by the Commonwealth Boxing Council (CBC).

"I am delighted to be able to inform you that, following completion of the voting referral procedure to all CBC Directors, the recommendation that your application for affiliation on behalf of the Indian Boxing Council to the Commonwealth Boxing Council be accepted has been endorsed unanimously," CBC Honorary secretary Simon Block wrote in a letter to IBC President Brig (Retd) P K Muralidharan.

The CBC will now formally register Raja as a Director in its Annual General Meeting scheduled in December this year. A firm date will be decided for the meeting within the next couple of weeks.

"I very much hope it will be possible for you to attend our AGM, not least so that you may be formally and legally registered as a Director," Block said in his letter.

The IBC has so far conducted two fight cards and will be holding its biggest event so far on July 16 when Vijender competes for the WBO Asia title against a yet-to-be-named opponent.
