Indian boxing, the country will host the men’s World Championship for the first time in 2021 besides next year’s women’s World Championship. The International Boxing Association (AIBA) made the announcement at the end of its two-day executive committee meeting in Moscow.
India has never conducted the men’s World Championship but has played host to the 2006 women’s mega-event. The major men’s boxing events hosted by India have been the 1990 World Cup in Mumbai and the 2010 Commonwealth Championships in New Delhi.
The development is quite significant given that India had a federation in place only last year after serving suspension and termination between 2012 and 2016 owing to administrative wrangling.
