“We are pleased with our progress and look forward to welcoming our friends from around the world to Amman over the coming days.
“The support that we have received from the business community has been particularly heartening and provides us with the helping hand required to host a world-class event.”
The qualifier is expected to attract the Asian and Oceania best boxers from 40 countries competing for 41 men’s qualifying spots in 8 weight divisions and 22 female qualifying spots in 5 weight divisions for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
