Boxing: ‘India cannot appeal overturned decision’

Krishan’s 13-11 win was changed into defeat after video replay.

India wanted to appeal against the International Boxing Association’s (AIBA) decision to overturn a result that cost Vikas Krishan a quarter-final spot but the organisation said that the team did not have grounds to do so.

World amateur bronze medallist Krishan originally won his welterweight bout against Errol Spence 13-11 but after reviewing video footage, AIBA declared the American the winner. The governing body said its competition jury found Spence should have been awarded four additional points for fouls committed by the Indian, handing the US men a lifeline after the original result appeared to condemn them to their worst result at an Olympic Games.

“Under AIBA Technical & Competition Rules, the decision of the Competition Jury in relation to a protest is final, and cannot be appealed,” confirmed a spokesman for AIBA.

seriously, i have similar views about indian media, they do not cover positive news about Pakistan,but always focus negative aspect of Pakistan. india does same to China, instead of praising their Olympic success indian media is busy digging all negative sort of things about Chinese athletes.

@news why india always become sissy when they loses. Few days ago they did same drama when they were kicked out of badminton doubles, then,it was a foul play. if you have guts go beat them instead making lame excuses.

one more thing, its not cricket, where BCCI can influence league of 8 nations. its a world event. in Olympics, where entire world is participating, no one gives damn about a glorified labor market.
