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 said in a statement. "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 added.
