The AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be held in New Delhi in November 13-25
The upcoming AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be the highlight of the end of the year in the globe’s boxing map. The tenth anniversary edition of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships will be held for the elite female boxers in New Delhi, India from November 13 until the 25th.
The deadline for the registrations in the AIBA Database to the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships is October 5.
The first edition of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships was held in the Unites States in Scranton in 2001. Asia is the general host of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships and New Delhi will be the four-in-a-row Asian cities organizing the event after Qinhuangdao, Jeju and Kazakhstan’s capital Astana.
On the last occasion that the World Women’s Championships were held in New Delhi, Katie Taylor, who has since switched codes, claimed Ireland’s first gold at this level. The Bray woman, also the European champion at the time, went to No. 1 in the AIBA World 60kg rankings after that win and occupied pole position for ten years in an extraordinary decade-long dominance of the lightweight class. Current Irish Elite champion Kellie Harrington reached the light-welter World Elite final in 2016.
Irish boxing is in 9th position in the all-time World Women’s Elite Championships medal table. Taylor (5 gold and 1 bronze) and Harrington (silver) have claimed medals at this level.
Meantime, Asian boxers dominated the last edition of the AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships in Astana where our ladies won six titles. Kazakhstan claimed four, China two gold medals in Astana two years ago but Chinese Taipei, DPR Korea, India and Thailand also achieved podium places.
