The Asian Elite Men and Women Boxing Championships have been transferred to the United Arab Emirates capital of Dubai from May 21 to June 1, 2021, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In a news release on Wednesday, the Association of Boxing Alliances in the Philippines (ABAP) said the decision was announced by the Asian Boxing Confederation late Tuesday.

The original host city was New Delhi but had to be moved because of the massive surge of coronavirus infections in the Indian city, the ABAP said.

According to Anadolu Agency’s report, India set a new global record Wednesday for daily coronavirus cases, registering more than 360,000 infections in the past 24 hours.

According to daily statistics released by the Health Ministry, 360,960 new cases were registered, taking the country’s overall caseload to 17.99 million.

The death toll has now reached 201,187, including a record 3,293 new fatalities.

India has been registering an exponentially high number of cases – over 300,000 daily Covid-19 infections since April 22.

ABAP secretary-general Ed Picson said ABAP president Ricky Vargas instructed him to study the plausibility of participation in the tournament considering the adjustments, both logistical and financial, that the change entails.

“We will make that determination in a few days”, Picson said.

Most of the Filipino elite national boxers are currently in Muaklek, Thailand in a joint training camp with the Thai national boxing team. They have been in Thailand since March 10 of this year.
