New Delhi: After successful completion of the junior, youth and men's national championships, the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) is all set to roll out the Elite Women's National Championships from October 21-27.

The fifth edition of the prestigious event will be played at St Joseph's International School in Hisar.

This event will also mark the return of the Elite Women's National Championships after a gap of more than one year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We've resumed the domestic circuit slowly but steadily. Complete safety precautions have been taken for our boxers and support staff as well as for the others involved in organising the tournaments in these unprecedented times. We have successfully conducted five national championships in the last three months, including the junior and youth events," BFI President Ajay Singh said.
