India will be hosting for the first time men's World Boxing Championship!
India will host its first ever men’s World Championship in 2021. After a two-day long meeting in Moscow, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) made the announcement.
The venue for the tournament is New Delhi. The 2019 men’s championship will be held at Sochi in Russia and that of women’s will be held at Trabzon in Turkey. India had already hosted the mega women’s boxing championship in 2006, but for men’s it’s the first time for India. The major men’s boxing events hosted by India till date are the 1990 World Cup in Mumbai and the 2010 Commonwealth Championships in New Delhi. AIBA president Dr. Ching Kuo Wu expressed his appreciation for Boxing Federation of India’s commitment and efforts in developing the sport.
Also, this is a historic step for boxing in India. This shows the resolve and commitment of the federation for the game. The announcement will make boxers work hard and improve their game. The future of boxing in India is being pushed towards a brighter direction.
The Boxing Federation of India has managed to get this for India and now our players need to live up to their expectations!
