Conner Tudsbury has been added to the group of boxers selected by GB Boxing to compete at the 2021 AIBA World Boxing Championships in Belgrade, Serbia, (26 October – 6 November 2021).
The 21-year-old will compete in the new cruiserweight (81-86kg) category that has been recently introduced by AIBA.
Like the rest of the team, Tudsbury will represent England in the competition. It will be the third time this year he has competed internationally having boxed at the EUBC U22 European championships and the Socikas tournament Lithuania in where he claimed a gold medal boxing at light-heavyweight (81kg).
Tudsbury said: “It feels amazing to be going to the World Championships. I am really looking forward to going to my first major.
“I am yet to experience what it will feel like at this weight but I am confident in myself and think I am good enough to get a medal.
“This is a group with loads of potential we just need some experience so it’s great that we have this chance to go the Worlds. For most of it will be our first major and I’m really excited to get started.”
