The new dates for the AIBA World Men’s and Women’s Youth Championships are April 10-24, 2021, according to the International Boxing Association (AIBA).

The tournament was scheduled to begin in Kielce, Poland on November 2 next but was postponed because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The AIBA Executive Committee’s proposal to maintain the initial age eligibility period of the Championships was approved to respect the athlete’s preparation for the tournament.

It remains for boxers born from January 01, 2002, to December 31, 2003.

‘First and foremost, our athletes’ interests are our priority. And I advocate their needs to be healthy and well prepared for the major competitions of their age. We hope that the health situation in the world becomes better, and Kielce can organize an excellent tournament in April 2021,’ said AIBA Interim President, Dr. Mohamed Moustahsane.
