Olympic BoxingSummer Olympics - Paris Olympic 2024

Boxing has been a staple of the Olympic Games since their modern inception in 1896. Athletes from around the world have showcased their pugilistic prowess in pursuit of Olympic glory.

The sport has undergone various changes over the years, evolving weight classes and introducing new rules to ensure fairness and safety. Historically, nations like the United States, Cuba, and the former Soviet Union have been powerhouses in Olympic boxing, consistently producing skilled and formidable boxers.

One of the most iconic figures in Olympic boxing history is Teofilo Stevenson of Cuba. Stevenson secured three consecutive gold medals in the heavyweight division in Munich 1972, Montreal 1976, and Moscow 1980. His achievements exemplify the legacy that exceptional boxers leave on the Olympic stage.

Another noteworthy athlete is FĂ©lix Sav0n, also from Cuba, who matched Stevenson's feat by clinching three consecutive gold medals in the heavyweight division in Barcelona 1992, Atlanta 1996, and Sydney 2000. These Cuban boxers have contributed significantly to their country's dominance in Olympic boxing.

The United States has a rich history in Olympic boxing, producing legends like Muhammad Ali (then known as Cassius Clay), who won the light heavyweight gold medal in Rome 1960. Other American boxing greats include Sugar Ray Leonard, Oscar De La Hoya, and Andre Ward, each leaving an indelible mark on Olympic history.

Stevenson and Savon remain the boxers with the most Olympic gold medals in boxing, having achieved the remarkable three-peat in the heavyweight division.

Boxing events at the Paris 2024 Olympics in France are slated to unfold from July 27 to August 10. The initial boxing matches are set to take place at Arena Paris Nord in Villepinte, setting the stage for the preliminary rounds. As the games intensify, the medal rounds comprising the semifinals and finals will grace the iconic Roland Garros Stadium, adding grandeur to the quest for Olympic boxing glory.
