In a response to an e-mail from AIBA's legal cell, the AIBA chairperson Kishan Narsi wrote, "This is to inform all the stakeholders of Indian Boxing fraternity that AIBA has provisionally suspended Boxing India and it has instructed AdHoc Committee to handle issues related to calling a meeting of all the stakeholders and taking steps ahead, including holding fresh elections to streamline stalled Indian Boxing operations asap."

Indian boxers performed well in Bangkok during the Asian championships, but they participated under the AIBA flag, and they will continue to do so in the World Championships in Doha.
