About the program

The Youth World Boxing Championships are not for kids and they are not for amateur fighters or amateurs who want to move into the professional ranks. The program is for professional boxers with the merits to become champions of the world. The Youth World Boxing Championships gives boxers their first steps into championship fights. These steps are taken with much care and consideration by everyone who is concerned with their futures. I am pleased to announce the change in the maximum age to contest for our title to 23 years 11 months. 

I am looking forward to working with all the boxers, managers, trainers, commissioners and promoters who have worked to make the YWBC the leading youth boxing organization in the world.
Please contact me at any time concerning this program.

Thank you,

Rex Ross Walker
