AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships was supposed to be held in Istanbul, Turkey, scheduled from the 6th to 19th of December 2021.
Whilst AIBA has been working hard to maintain the schedule of this event, the feedback received is that too many National Federations are facing difficult situations and restrictions within their countries.
Due to this AIBA Board of Directors in consensus the Turkish National Federation has decided to postpone the Women’s World Championships to March 2022.
‘We are aware that some teams have already started preparations for this event and will be disappointed. However, the safety and wellbeing of our athletes, officials and other stakeholders is priority, and therefore we cannot take the risk to proceed with the event’, AIBA President Umar Kremlev said.
