Its not banned in India. I personally know a professional Indian boxer named Zia Qazi. As far as some of the Muslim countries, it is banned because Islam bans punching another muslim in the face for either sport or brotherly fights. Some of the more strict Muslim majority nations adhere to this rule, where as more liberal Muslim countries like Turkey do not.
