Olympic Games Boxing schedule confirmed

The IOC has released the venue and dates for boxing at the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, where Ireland’s Jim McCourt claimed Olympic bronze in 1964.

The tournament begins on July 24, 2021, with the women’s feather and men’s welter, light-heavy and heavyweight preliminaries at the Kokugikan arena.

The men’s heavyweight bouts are for places in the quarter-finals.

The Games were scheduled to begin this month in Tokyo but were postponed a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The European, Americas and World qualifiers for Tokyo 2021 will be decided next February and March and May and June.

The Asia/Oceania and African qualifiers are already completed.

As things stand, Irish flyweight Brendan Irvine is qualified for Tokyo.

Two hundred and eighty-six boxers – 186 males and 100 females – will line out at the 32nd Olympiad across eight weights for men and five limits for women.
