It was more than a victory for Lovlina since Arundhati demanded that she be given a fair trial against Lovlina to earn the right to represent the nation. This is for the second time in a year that Lovlina proved to be mightier than the World Youth Champion.

In November 2021, she had approached the Delhi High Court and wrote a letter to the BFI (Boxing Federation of India) requesting a trial against Lovlina to select India’s representative in the 70kg weight division for the World Championships. A trial had indeed been organised before the postponed event in May 2022, which was won 7-0 by Lovlina.
