The final three Olympic boxing qualification tournaments for the Tokyo Games in 2021 are further delayed, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year, the International Olympic Committee’s Boxing Task Force (BTF) assumed control of the five continental qualification tournaments within the run up to the Games.

The Asia-Oceania, Africa, and some of the Europe events were completed before the ultimate three tournaments were postponed until the start of 2021. Due to the continued effects of the virus worldwide, and so as to make sure a good and equitable opportunity for all athletes to be ready to participate, the BTF decided to delay the remaining events further.

Coronavirus initially also caused the postponement of the Asia and Oceania qualifier which was originally scheduled for Wuhan, the hub of the initial coronavirus outbreak, in early February.

That event was subsequently switched to Jordan and happened within the capital city, Amman, where 63 boxers qualified for Tokyo 2020. you’ll read the complete review here.

A further 33 African boxers booked their tickets to the Games through events in Dakar, Senegal, and you’ll read further details that here.

The new dates are:

  • European Olympic Qualifier – Phase 2 (continuation from the day after it was suspended – day 4 of competition): 22-26 April 2021, London.
  • Americas Olympic Qualifier: May 2021
  • Final World Olympic Qualifier: June 2021

The boxing competition at Tokyo 2020 is due to take place from July 24 to August 8 2021 at the Kokugikan Arena.
