Vijender Singh will not be considered for selection for two upcoming international events for missing the trials.
The beleaguered boxer missed the two-day boxing trials in Patiala and will not be selected in the squad for the events in Cyprus and Cuba which serve as build-up events for the World Ch-ampionships at Almaty, Kazakhs-tan in October. The Indian Amat-eur Boxing Federation (IABF) said that it may not be possible for Vijender to take part in events without attending trials as it was important to assess his fitness. “Vijender won’t participate in Cy-prus and Cuba. For the time being we will not consider him,” said IABF president Abhishek Matoria.
