India Unveil Logo, Mascot and Song for AIBA Youth Women’s World Boxing Championship


Assam’s famed one-horned rhino was unveiled as the official mascot of the 2017 AIBA Youth Women’s World Boxing Championship in Guwahati, Assam. Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal and Boxing Federation of India (BFI) president Ajay Singh released the championship’s official logo and anthem, to mark the countdown for India’s first youth world boxing championship from November 19 to 26.

The official mascot, named Guppy, is a female version of Assam’s one-horned rhino. The logo infuses two key elements– the strength of an Indian woman in the form of a female boxer and the culture of Assam through the ‘gamosa’, a hand-woven piece of cloth in the state.
The World Championship’s official anthem is ‘Make Some Noise’. It is composed by Shaan and rendered by renowned singer Sunidhi Chauhan.
