The International Boxing Association (IBA) has confirmed the boxing card, where the world’s top amateur boxing stars will be in action. The event, prior to the International Boxing Day, will be held next Saturday, August 26, in the city of Serpukhov, Russia.

The President of the IBA, Umar Kremlev, said he was looking forward to witnessing this kind of unique events being developed by the IBA, aiming to support the growth of boxing in the world. 

Serpukhov will become the capital of international boxing with a spectacular atmosphere and uncompromising bouts. This is a magnificent event to precede International Boxing Day, when we come together and celebrate the impact of our discipline beyond just a sport,” said Kremlev.
