New Delhi: India will host the women's world boxing championships in 2023 in New Delhi, two years after the country was stripped of the hosting rights of men's event for not paying the requisite fee to the global governing body.
India has never conducted the men's world championship but it will be the third time that the elite women's competition will be held in the country having conducted the championships in 2006 and 2018 in New Delhi.
"We have got the hosting rights of women's world championship and are looking to host the event around the end of March and first week of April," Boxing Federation of India (BFI) Secretary General Hemanta Kalita said. (PTI)
