PhilBoxing.com




The United States will be sending the most number of boxers to the 2012 London Olympics. Team USA will field nine male and three female boxers for a total of twelve fighters. Only the men’s light-flyweight category escapes from the grasp of the Americans, for they do not have a qualified entry in the smallest weight division.

Next in the most number of boxers with 11 each are Australia (10 males, 1 female) and Kazakhstan (9 males, 2 females) with 11 boxers each. Australia dominated the Oceania Olympic Qualifying Event by winning all ten weight categories for men while only one woman boxer qualified in the 2012 World Women’s Championships.

The countries which have the third most number of boxing participants with 10 entries are Brazil (7 males, 3 females), host Great Britain (7 males, 3 females), and Russia (7 males, 3 females).

Ecuador (7 males), Italy (7 males), Ukraine (7 males) place sixth. Ireland (5 males, 1 female), Turkey (6 males), Uzbekistan (6 males) are in seventh place.

Egypt (5 males), France (5 males), Puerto Rico (5 males), and Tunisia (4 males, 1 female) follows at eighth place.

Bulgaria (3 males, 1 females), Germany (4 males), Ghana (4 males), Iran (4 males), Japan (4 males), Mongolia (4 males), and Tajikistan (3 males, 1 female) are at ninth place.

At tenth place with 3 boxers each are Belarus (3 males), Canada (2 males, 1 female), Colombia (3 males), Dominican Republic (3 males), Hungary (3 males), Nigeria (2 males, 1 female), Sweden (2 males, 1 females), Thailand (3 males), and Venezuela (2 males, 1 female).
