The 2021 AIBA World Men’s and Women’s Youth Championships will be hosted in Poland next Spring.

The tournament begins at an exact date to be confirmed in Kielce in south-central Poland next April.

Two candidates, Poland and Nicaragua, were intended to host the tournament.

The AIBA Executive Committee voted with the majority for Poland’s bid. 

Jude Gallagher won light-flyweight bronze for Ireland at the 2018 AIBA World Youths in Budapest, Hungary.

The proposed dates for the 2021 tournament – which was postponed from November this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic – are April 10/24 next year.
