Following the ASBC Asian U22 Boxing Championships the next continental event starts in Jordan. The competition period of the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Boxing Championships is March 2-14 in Amman.
The Technical Meeting and the Official Draw of the new edition of the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Boxing Championships confirmed that 352 female and male boxers from 21 nations are going to attend the event. ASBC Asian Boxing Championships will return to Amman, Jordan after nine years of break where the city hosted the ASBC Asian Men’s Elite Boxing Championships in July 2013.
India, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Mongolia, Nepal, Pakistan, Palestine, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tajikistan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Vietnam and Yemen sent their best talents to the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Boxing Championships. India, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan sent the biggest delegations to the competition but Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Thailand and host Jordan are also attending with strong teams.
Boxers who were born in 2004 and in 2005 are eligible to participate in the ASBC Asian Youth Boxing Championships. For the youth boxers, this is an excellent option to prepare for the upcoming IBA Youth World Boxing Championships which will feature later this year. The younger talents from the 2006 and 2007 age groups can compete in the junior part of the championships in Jordan.
The last edition of the ASBC Asian Youth & Junior Boxing Championships was held in Dubai in August 2021 and the number of the boxers did not exceed the 300 which means the new competition will be much bigger than six months ago.
