“For many years, IBA has organized World Boxing Championships for men, women and youth. The World Boxing Tour has been designed to expand the opportunities we offer boxers around the world to compete in international tournaments featuring the best boxers. We are delighted to partner with national federations to organize the World Boxing Tour and help turn the dreams of boxers around the world into reality,” said IBA President Umar Kremlev.

An overview of hosting was provided to IBA National Federations, outlining WBT requirements, financial expectations, governance models and more, while highlighting the benefits of hosting. It will also allow potential hosts to engage more actively in the bidding process at an earlier stage and better understand WBT events as a platform that creates shared value by facilitating exchanges between athletes, spectators , the media and the organizers.

IBA Secretary General Istvan Kovacs added: “When developing the World Boxing Tour, we had to consider not only the needs of the IBA or the boxers, but also the benefits for the hosts. With our model, hosts can expect a straightforward bidding process, supported event delivery, a partnership approach to rights and responsibilities, reasonable expectations, and significant steps toward sustainability and the inheritance.

The newly designed hosting requirements and a draft competition schedule which has been reviewed, revised and approved by the IBA Athletes Committee and the IBA Competitions Committee have been distributed to all National Federations.
