Boxer Arundhati Choudhary on Monday filed a motion for Olympic bronze medalist Lovlina Borgohain for an upcoming hearing on November 22 in the case she seeks trial for the Women’s World Championships in Thailand. Turkey.
Notably, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has postponed the women’s world boxing championship to March 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the host country.
Sandeep Lamba, advocate for Arundhati Choudhary, said Lovlina Borgohain is also a party to the lawsuit and has therefore transferred the application.
Arundhati’s advocate Sandeep Lamba told Sportskeeda: “Since her name is also there now, we have forwarded the application to the court to call her in the next hearing.
Last week, the Delhi High Court issued a notice to the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) and the Sports Authority of India (SAI) of the lawsuit filed by Arundhati Choudhary. The national champion managed to try his hand at the 70kg for the boxing world in Istanbul.
The next hearing on this matter will be held on November 22.
What will the BFI handle in the case of Arundhati Choudhary?
In its statement, the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) in its statement said Lovlina Borgohain’s exception was a one-off case to honor her performance at the Tokyo Olympics.
“As only one entry in each weight class could be submitted for world championships, the BFI made a conscious decision during the EC meeting and later in the Selection Committee meeting to issue “an exception for Ms. Lovlina Borgohain” Tokyo Olympic Bronze medalist, who will be selected for the live world championships in her weight class. This decision was made due to the fact that there is very little gap between the Olympics and the Women’s Elite Championship held in Hisar,” the BFI statement said.
The union added that it has announced it to all state associations before national citizens. It also informed Delhi HC that Arundhati Choudhary (claimant) was brought on as a substitute for Lovlina Borgohain.
