    Default You hear about the Iranian women’s boxer

    The first Iranian female to officially fight in a boxing match refused to return to the Islamic Republic after a warrant was issued for her arrest in Tehran, a representative for the woman said Wednesday.

    Sadaf Khadem, 24, competed in the boxing match against Anne Chauvin in France over the weekend. Clara Dallay, Khadem’s representative, told Reuters that an arrest warrant was issued for her client and the fight organizer Mahyar Monshipour.

    Monshipour, who was born in Iran, was a former boxing champion and is now a French citizen, according to Reuters. He set up the match after Iran began to allow women to compete.

    The head of Iran’s boxing federation denied that Khadem would be arrested, according to the ISNA news agency.

    “Mrs. Khadem is not a member of organized athletes for boxing, and from the boxing federation’s perspective all her activities are personal,” Hossein Soori said, according to Iran media.

    Khadem told French media that she was told a warrant was issued, according to BBC.

    “I was fighting in a legally approved match, in France. But as I was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, which is completely normal in the eyes of the entire world, I confounded the rules of my country,” she said.

    Khadem added she wasn’t wearing a hijab for the bout and was being coached by a man, according to BBC.
