The International Boxing Association (AIBA) yesterday marked the 150 days to go milestone to the 2017 AIBA World Elite Men’s Championships in Hamburg, Germany this autumn.
The European Elite Championships in the Ukraine (June 16/24) will act as the sole qualifier for Hamburg (August 25/September 3).
The top eight boxers (the quarter-finalists) in each of the ten weight classes in the Ukraine book tickets for the 19th edition of the World Elites.
“We have five unique venues for the qualifiers, including a first AIBA event in Honduras, and we look forward to working with the LOCs to deliver five first-class showcases of elite men’s boxing that will give our athletes the best platform on which to pursue their dreams of gold,” said AIBA President Dr Ching-Kuo Wu.
