Live from Tokyo Olympics: Boxing at Kokugikan Arena Photo Gallery
Boxing has featured at all modern Olympic Games since St. Louis 1904, with the exception of Stockholm 1912. Women’s events were a popular addition to the program at London 2012 and at Tokyo 2020, women will compete for gold in five weight divisions, from fly (51kg) to middle (75kg), and men in eight divisions, from fly (51kg) to super heavy (91+ kg). Until Rio 2016, only amateurs were permitted to participate in the Olympic Games. This restriction is now no longer the case.
