Dear boxers, living legends of the great game of boxing,
ladies and gentlemen!
I have the distinct honor to greet you on the upcoming AIBA World Boxing
Championship, 2021 in Belgrade, Serbia.
After 43 years, we are back in Belgrade for new matches.
After the historical tournament of 1978 in capital city of Jugoslavia, this is the
second time for our Nation to be back as hosts. Winning a medal at the World
Championships is a dream of all boxers and admirers alike. And it is in our
nature never to stop until our dreams are achieved. The great competition ahead
of us represents a unique mixture of team spirit, courage, patriotism, and
unfathomable passion for boxing.
I firmly believe that the Serbia Boxing Federation will do a fantastic job in
organizing this tournament, and that both the competitors and spectators will
take great pleasure in the opportunity to participate in it.
I would like to express my utmost gratitude to the International Boxing
Association for convening such a wonderful event.
President of the Serbian Boxing Federation
