Boxing Overview

Two athletes square up to each other in a ring, and victory is gained by the athlete who more successfully lands blows to their opponent's head and torso. This is a simple summary of a sport that featured at the ancient Olympic Games in the 7th century BC, when opponents fought with strips of leather wrapped around their fists.

At that time, boxing matches would continue ‘until the opponent concedes or loses consciousness’ and at various times the sport was banned for being excessively brutal. In Great Britain during the 19th century, boxing was formalised with rules that included the wearing of gloves. Since then, boxers have become renowned for their sporting demeanour, with opponents showing immense respect for each other's courage and physical commitment.

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 programme at London 2012. 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).
