New Delhi, Apr 30 (IANS) | Publish Date: 4/30/2021 1:47:28 PM IST

The World Boxing Council (WBC) India Championship fight between the country’s top women boxers -- Chandni Mehra and Suman Kumari -- which was to take place in Jalandhar on May 1 has been postponed. A statement from the organisers said, “Considering the current spike in the Covid-19 cases in the country, LZ Promotions has taken the decision to postpone the upcoming WBC India Championship fight to a later date.” The fresh date, which was being promoted as the country’s first Professional USA boxing event sanctioned by Indian Boxing Council, will be announced soon. WBC is one of the four top organisations, which sanction professional boxing bouts globally, and this would have been India’s maiden foray into hosting a title card for two female fighters.

Chandni and Suman are India’s No. 1 fighters in lightweight and featherweight categories and were to challenge each other in this bout, aiming to become the first WBC India champion across both men’s and women’s categories.
