By iSportconnect | April 19, 2012

The International Boxing Association (AIBA) have revealed that Bangkok will host the 2012 Youth World Boxing Championships after an agreement had been reached between AIBA President Ching-Kuo Wu and Thai Boxing Association president Chamlong Boongrapue.

Bangkok has always been a permanent source of contacts for AIBA, with the city hosting its Executive Committee meeting at the start of this year.

 

The Thailand capital is also involved in the AIBA-owned World Series of Boxing (WSB) tournament.

 

“Thailand has been one of AIBA’s strongest partners,” said Wu.

 

“I am very pleased to be bringing one of our most important events to a country where boxing is one of the most popular and beloved of sports.

 

“I really look forward to seeing our youth boxers in action in the wonderful setting of Thailand.”

 

“It is our great honour to host this prestigious AIBA event in our country,” said Boongrapue.

 

“We will do our utmost to make this event a very successful boxing competition which all participating youth boxers will remember for a long time.”
