2020 Games in Tokyo: Boxing excellence
Boxing has been one of the most exciting events and an integral part of the Games for decades: it has been contested at all editions since 1904, with the exception of the 1912 Games in Stockholm, where the sport was banned by Swedish law. In 2012, women’s boxing was also added to the programme, which provided one of the most memorable moments as Nicola Adams claimed gold on home turf in the debut women’s event. The competition is organised through tournaments separated by weight classes, ranging from flyweights and featherweights up to heavyweights and super-heavyweights, although these classifications have been known to change. Boxers qualify for the competition via their worldwide ranking and a qualifying tournament and, once they arrive at the Games, they are randomly allocated in a single-elimination tournament that provides for intense bouts and unlikely underdogs to go far in the competition.

Knockout blows and gold medal bouts
Historically, the boxing event at the Games has been dominated by the USA, however, the sport uniquely allows for smaller nations to come to the fore. For example, alongside Great Britain and Russia, countries such as Italy, Hungary and Kazakhstan have a fantastic record in the competition, while Cuba comes close to challenging American dominance of the event despite its comparatively minute size. To level the playing field in the event, professional boxers were previously not allowed to compete in the Games, however, this changed in 2016 and has therefore raised the profile and quality of the boxing, making it set to be a true highlight of Tokyo in 2020. For more combat sports at the world’s greatest sporting festival, you may also be interested in the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Judo, the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Karate, or the 2020 Games in Tokyo: Taekwondo.
