Klingon society has to have mechanisms in place to prohibit the killing of n00bs.
Why didn't Gowron just said that he challenges Toral to a duel when the little snot said he wanted to challenge him?
Toral actually was the one who challenged Gowron to a fight. Picard didn't allow it to happen. It was implied that if Picard ruled Toral's challenge valid, an assassin would kill Gowron before the fight.

There is precident that if someone else kills the challenger to the High Council, the matter of their challenge is settled. Worf was the one who killed Duras, clearing the way for Gowron for example.
