CHENNAI/MUMBAI:Looks like this time it’s for real. The newly-formed Boxing Federation of India has sent out notice to all registered boxing associations of the country to conduct elections here on September 25 to take things forward.

According to sources, BFI’s newly-formed interim committee has sent out a notice on Tuesday. The source also mentioned that the federation will follow the sports code and will try and avoid acrimony like last time in 2014. “Our plan is to have a consensus so that there is no last moment glitches,” said the sources.

Those who took part in the elections of the now defunct Boxing India will be eligible to take part in the elections.

The BFI, formed two months ago has now been registered with a bank account. The meeting will be held in Mumbai Cricket Association’s Sachin Tendulkar Gymkhana in Kandivli.

The federation has intimated the international boxing association (AIBA) and they will be sending obserevrs for the elections. The Indian boxing administration has been in disarray since 2012 when the federation was first suspended due to manipulation in elections. A new body, Boxing India, which took shape in 2014, was also terminated last year.
