The Asian Boxing Confederation is proud of the fact the next AIBA Women’s Youth World Boxing Championships will be held in our continent once again after the Taipei 2015 edition.

The best boxers in the four Youth Olympic Games weight classes, who were born in 2000, will be qualified automatically for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games. Following this first chance to our continent’s best women’s youth talents, the second qualification event will be the 2018 ASBC Asian Confederation Youth Boxing Championships.
