AIBA Name Host Cities For 2015/16 Olympic Qualifiers
by Michael O'Neill

(JULY 18) The International Boxing Association (AIBA) has confirmed the results of the bidding for AIBA’s major competitions to be held in 2015 and 2016, as well as for the Olympic Qualifying Events for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.

The 2014 Women’s World Championships will take place in Jeju City, Korea in November as we previously reported, following Canada having withdrawn.

Back in the Spring time, the AIBA confirmed that the four women’s continental qualifying events will run alongside the men's tournaments at the same time and same venue.

There will be 20 women's places allocated for Rio 2016 at these four tournaments in the flyweight, lightweight and middleweight categories.

"The International Boxing Association is delighted with its qualification system for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games," an AIBA spokesman told ‘insidethegames’ at the time.

"For the first time in history, the pathway will offer no less than six different opportunities for AIBA men boxers and five for AIBA women boxers to qualify for the competition.

"AIBA believes that this is a unique opportunity for all boxers who dream of participating in the Olympic Games to get a fair chance to qualify.

The top four women boxers in each weight category at the 2015 World Championships event in Astana,Kazakhstan will also make it to Rio.

Additionally a maximum of six quota places - five men and one woman - across all weight categories, except in men's heavy and super heavyweight, will be reserved for the host country, Brazil.

Five men's and three women's Tripartite Commission invitation places are also available to eligible National Olympic Committees for Rio 2016.

The AIBA’s Executive Committee Members this week selected the following Host Cities, further to the bid presentations made by all candidates:

• Astana, Kazakhstan, won to host the 2016 AIBA Women’s World Boxing Championships

• St. Petersburg won to host the 2015 AIBA Junior World Boxing Championships

• Taipei will host the AOB Women’s Junior/Youth World Championships

• Yaounde, Cameroon, won to host the 2016 AOB African Olympic Qualifying Event

• Buenos Aires won to host the 2016 AOB American Olympic Qualifying Event

• Qian’an, China, won to host the AOB Asian/Oceania Olympic Qualifying Event

• St Petersburg won to host the 2016 AIBA Youth World Boxing Championships

• Istanbul won to host the 2016 AOB European Olympic Qualifying Event

• Baku, Azerbaijan, won to host the 2016 Final AOB World Olympic Qualifying Event
