The Boxing Federation of India (BFI) landed in trouble when national champion Arundhati Choudhary challenged in court its decision to nominate Olympic bronze medalist Lovlina Borgohain in the 70kg category without a trial for the World Championships. However, with the tournament being postponed to May 2022, the federation told the court that fresh trials would be conducted and everyone would get a fair chance.

Borgohain had so far kept silent on the matter. But, during a conversation with olympics.com, he said, ‘I have no problem in giving trials. I always follow the decision of my federation. The decision of not conducting the trial was of the federation. I had accepted it. Now if the federation wants to do a trial, I have no problem. I am a fighter and believe in fighting only in the ring.

Lovlina has not participated in any tournament since she lost to gold medalist Busenaj Surmenelli in the Tokyo Olympics semi-finals. He was subdued by a Turkish boxer with dangerous hooks and body shots. Although the Assamese boxer has left that defeat behind, he feels sad when he thinks about that bout again. it happens.
Recalling that match, she said, ‘I think I lost that match due to my lack of training. Due to COVID-19 and my personal injuries, I could not train much. You prepare differently for the Olympics. But, I guess I couldn’t do that. If I kept training, I would have defeated him. I had nothing on my mind except a gold medal in Tokyo.
