Pakistani boxer forced to miss Commonwealth Games
A boxer from Pakistan, Zohaib Rasheed, was unable to compete in the Commonwealth Games. Because his name was not included in the boxing draw. As soon as the competition draws were made public, it was discovered that Zohaib’s name did not appear in the flyweight category at all. When the Pakistan Boxing Federation (PBF) was informed of this, they told the Pakistani boxing team that it was due to a mistake, according to PBF officials. Even after three days of deliberation, no solution was found. Also, the Pakistani boxer’s management was notified that he would not be allowed to participate in the competition.
The secretary of the PBF, Col. Nasir Tung, remarked, “This is really disheartening and frustrating. Because to someone else’s mistake, the player was left in the dark for three days. For him, this is a cruel and unusual form of torture.”
We’re not going to keep quiet since they handled our player unfairly, he declared. For their part, the IBA and the CWG Federation have been contacted by Pakistan’s boxing federation’s secretary, who stated that the country will file damages claims with the International Court of Arbitration for Sports (ICSA).
