Asian Games 2023: HC Rejects Boxers’ Request and Declares There Is No Time For Selection Trials

<p>On Wednesday, the Punjab and Haryana High Court rejected the petition filed by three boxers, among them silver medalist Amit Panghal in the world championships, stating that it was impractical to have trials at this time because the Asian Games would begin the next week.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-192114″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-mumbai-car-driver-fatally-strikes-an-elderly-woman-while-attempting-to-act-like-a-.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com mumbai car driver fatally strikes an elderly woman while attempting to act like a” width=”1062″ height=”707″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-mumbai-car-driver-fatally-strikes-an-elderly-woman-while-attempting-to-act-like-a-.jpg 275w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/theindiaprint.com-mumbai-car-driver-fatally-strikes-an-elderly-woman-while-attempting-to-act-like-a–150×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1062px) 100vw, 1062px” title=”Asian Games 2023: HC Rejects Boxers' Request and Declares There Is No Time For Selection Trials 3″></p>
<p>On September 23, the Asian Games will get underway in Hangzhou.</p>
<p>Following their exclusion from the Indian team for the Asian Games in July, Panghal (51 kg), national champion Rohit Mor (57 kg), and Commonwealth Games silver medalist Sagar Ahlawat (+92 kg) filed a high court lawsuit against the Boxing Federation of India (BFI).</p>
<p>They had demanded that trials be conducted in their weight divisions and had questioned BFI’s assessment procedure for choosing the Asian Games team.</p>
<p>“Due to the little amount of time remaining, the court denied the motion to conduct trials. On September 23, the Asian Games will begin, according to fellow petitioner and sports activist Jaipal Dhankhar of Haryana.</p>
<p>He said, “The detailed judgment is anticipated to come in a day or two.”</p>
<p>The three-week review procedure is part of the BFI’s new selection policy, which has been in effect since this year. During this time, boxers are evaluated based on a variety of criteria.</p>
<p>In place of Panghal, Mor, and Ahlawat, respectively, Deepak Bhoria (51 kg), Sachin Siwach (57 kg), and Narender Berwal (+92 kg) have been chosen for the Games.</p>
<p>The boxing matches get underway on Sunday.</p>
