The Asian Boxing Confederation (ASBC) Championships in India have been postponed until 2021.
The event was awarded to India in February, and scheduled to take place in November and December.
Doubts over the event taking place were raised due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has led to the cancellation and postponement of numerous sporting competitions. 
Boxing Federation of India secretary general Jay Kowli said the Asian Championships will now be moved to 2021.
Kowli was among the participants at an ASBC Executive Committee meeting yesterday, where the decision was taken.
“A postponement was proposed owing to the conditions prevailing because of the pandemic and it was accepted,” Kowli told the Press Trust of India.
“India remains the host and the tournament will now happen in 2021.
“The 2021 window for it will be discussed in the next Executive Committee meeting in November.
“We have to be careful, the cases are on the rise everywhere.
“Unless it is definitive that there is a decline, it was thought best to put things on hold.
