5 Reasons not to miss the 2017 AIBA Women’s Youth World Championships in Guwahati

The Indian city of Guwahati will host the first-ever standalone AIBA Women’s Youth World Boxing Championships from 19 November, recognition of the development of the sport and the increase in the number of women’s medal categories at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games to five. With the spotlight firmly on the week-long tournament, here are five good reasons to stay up to date with all the action on AIBA channels.

  1. This is the Tokyo 2020 generation! The boxers heading to Guwahati will be pushing to become the next Olympic Boxing Champions, with all five women’s weight categories looking wide open.
  2. Past champs include USA’s two-time Olympic gold medalist Claressa Shields (2013), Italy’s Irma Testa (2013) and Russia’s Anastasia Beliakova (2011), all of whom went on to achieve great success at the elite level.
  3. The tournament represents the first major AIBA competition held in India since 2006, and will give a taste of the warm welcome promised when the BFI hosts the 2018 Elite Women’s and 2019 Elite Men’s World Championships.
  4. Inspiring the athletes in Guwahati will be one of the greatest female boxers of all time, India’s Mary Kom, who has been selected as the ambassador for this year’s championships.
  5. The Netherlands have never reached the podium in the history of the tournament, but Chelsey Hejnin has a great chance to change that this year at Flyweight, although USA’s former Junior World Champion Heaven Garcia will also be hoping she can extend her remarkable unbeaten streak all the way to the 51kg title.
