"We have been official sponsors of boxing since 2008 and are committed to this sport for the long term which is why it is heartening to receive the support of most of the state presidents, who are passionate about boxing and have spent their lives working towards improving the sport in India, said Sandeep Jajodia, CMD, Monnet Ispat."
Mumbai, June 27 - Boxing India was formally ratified Friday by 26 state boxing associations from across the country.

In early May, Boxing India received provisional approval from the AIBA world body to form a new federation that would govern the sport after Indian Amateur Boxing Federation (IABF) was terminated by AIBA.

After receiving AIBA approval, a meeting was called by Boxing India earlier this week to share with the state boxing associations the group's long term vision for boxing in India, a statement from Boxing India said.

During the meeting, Boxing India presented a comprehensive five-year developmental plan to achieve this vision on the basis of which they had received AIBA recognition and approval. This five-year plan included a detailed roadmap for the state associations and the national federation to be formed.

We have been official sponsors of boxing since 2008 and are committed to this sport for the long term which is why it is heartening to receive the support of most of the state presidents, who are passionate about boxing and have spent their lives working towards improving the sport in India, said Sandeep Jajodia, CMD, Monnet Ispat.

A formal constitution proposed by Boxing India and approved by AIBA, was passed by the members. As per a unanimous agreement by the state associations, Boxing India will host fresh elections for the new executive committee.
