Asian Games 2023: 13 member boxing team led by Nikhat Zareen & Lovlina Borgohain to represent India
A 13-member boxing team led by Nikhat Zareen and Lovlina Borgohain will represent India at the Asian Games 2023, which will be held this year in Hangzhou, China, from September 23 to October 8.
Amit Panghal, the 2018 Asian Games and 2022 Commonwealth Games winner, and Nitu Ghanghas, the reigning world and Commonwealth Games champion in the women’s 48kg, are not on the Indian boxing team for the Asian Games 2023.
The Indian boxing team for the Asian Games 2023 comprises seven men and six women.
Amit Panghal, India’s only boxing gold medalist at the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta, was however not selected in view of the new selection process implemented by the Boxing Federation of India (BFI), which favours internal assessment in place of traditional selection trials.
