Mary Kom had failed to book an Olympic ticket after losing in the second round of the World Championships last month.
Chairman of AIBA ad-hoc committee Kishan Narsi confirmed that the celebrated Indian boxer was denied a wildcard entry.
In a last-ditch attempt to fetch Mary Kom a Rio Olympics berth, the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and the ad-hoc committee administering boxing in the country had officially sent a request for a wildcard entry for the five-time world champion.
Narsi had also written to AIBA, seeking what is officially called a Tripartite Commission Invitation Place.
Ironically, however, the success of Indian boxers in the previous Olympic Games qualifying tournament, worked against Mary Kom’s chances.
A wildcard is granted to athletes from countries, who have had minimal participation in the previous editions of the Olympics. India had eight boxers participating in London 2012.
