Another good news for Indian sports lovers. In a historic first for Indian boxing, the country has won the bid to host men’s World Championship in 2021 along with the women’s World Championship for the second time next year, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has announced.

India has never conducted the men’s World Championship but has played host to the 2006 women’s boxing extravaganza. After examining the presentations, the AIBA Executive Committee unanimously awarded the 2019 women’s World Championships to Trabzon, Turkey. The AIBA 2018 Congress was awarded to Moscow, capital of Russia.

The AIBA made the announcement at the end of its two-day executive committee meeting 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 stated.

 “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 finalized for next month’s Men’s World Championships in Hamburg,” Dr Wu said.
