The Boxing Federation of India President Ajay Singh Saturday said he is hopeful that the lone boxer from Kosovo, a country that India does not recognise, will be able to compete in next week's women's world championships here.
"We have made some headway in the matter. I will be meeting officials at the Ministry of External Affairs on Monday and hopefully she will be granted a visa to compete here," he added.
Kosovo is one of nine debutants at the world championship, which starts on November 15.
