NEW DELHI: India is all set to host the elite men’s World Championship in year 2021 apart from organizing the women’s World Championship for the second time in 2018, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) said.
The AIBA made this declaration at the conclusion of its two-day executive committee meeting that took place in Moscow.
“…we are delighted to have the AIBA Men’s World Championships 2019 confirmed for Sochi, and equally excited to announce New Delhi as host city in 2021 as the Boxing Federation of India continues to show its commitment to developing the sport,” AIBA president Dr Ching Kuo Wu asserted.
“Following the presentation of the Turkish Boxing Federation, I know that Trabzon will also meet the demands of hosting the world’s biggest women’s boxing tournament in 2019,” he stated.
India has by no means organized the men’s World Championship earlier but has organized the 2006 women’s mega-event.
After evaluating the arrangement, the AIBA Executive Committee generally awarded the 2019 women’s World Championships to Trabzon, Turkey.
“The strength of all of the bids we have seen today is the clearest indication yet of AIBA’s successful efforts to amplify the prestige of its World Championships even further, with the strongest global broadcasting and sponsorship partnerships secured to date already finalised for next month’s Men’s World Championships in Hamburg,” Dr Wu asserted.
