1ST LEAD Hamburg Olympic bid boosted by amateur boxing worlds By Franko Koitzsch, dpa

Hamburg (dpa) - Hamburg‘s bid to host the 2024 summer Olympic Games has been boosted by the city being awarded the 2017 amateur boxing world championships.

The executive committee of the amateur boxing governing body AIBA announced Hamburg as the winner of the bidding process in Doha on Tuesday. Hamburg beat the Russian city of Sochi and Uzbekistan capital Tashkent for the event.

Pending the outcome of the referendum on November 29 to approve the bid, Hamburg is competing against Los Angeles, Paris, Rome and Budapest to stage the 2024 Games. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) elects the host city at its 2017 session in Lima.

"A before we were told that the presentation was to be shortened from 30 minutes to 15," Michael Mueller, general secretary and sport director of the German Boxing Association (DBV) said.

"The whole night went on rewriting our presentation. Our team has done a lot of work," he added.

The last boxing worlds held in Germany was 1995 in Berlin. "It‘s about time," it returned, DBV president Juergen Kyas said.

Securing the event is all the sweeter as five weeks ago Hamburg lost out in the vote to host the 2019 world rowing championships.

"The world championships is the best foundation to push the Olympic bid," Kyas said.

Hamburg hopes to gain momentum for 2024 by hosting championships in individual disciplines. AIBA is the third biggest association in the IOC with nearly 200 countries as members.

"Having 196 nations as members is a huge deal," Kyas said. "In these countries people will talk about Hamburg."

Hamburg‘s sport minister Michael Neumann was also relieved to have landed the event.

"This decision is a big success for Hamburg sport," the SPD politician said. "We now have a big chance to show the world what we can do in 2017."
