Here's How to Qualify for Boxing Olympics 2024

For the Paris 2024 Olympic Boxing, a total of 248 quota places are available for eligible boxers. Half of these places (124 )are for women boxers. This quota has been reduced by 40 places from the last Olympic competitions that were held in Tokyo in 2022. Each National Olympic Committee (NOC) that qualifies for the Olympics can send only one boxer in each weight category.

France is going to host this Summer Olympics in 2024, so the host nation has already reserved a maximum of six quota places, among which 3 are for men and 3 for women in their respective weight categories.

Besides these places, 9 places are allocated to eligible NOCs based on the Universality principle, with 4 quota places for men and 5 for women. It means the governing body makes sure there is fair representation and participation in the Boxing Olympics 2024.

The qualification process for boxing at the Paris 2024 Olympic Boxing begins with five regional multisport events: the African Games, Asian Games, European Games, Pacific Games, and Pan American Games. From the results of these competitions, a total of 139 quota spots will be allocated to the highest-ranked boxers in each weight category.

After the continental phase, the remaining quota places will be determined in two world qualification tournaments organized by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in the first half of the 2024 season.

These tournaments will offer additional spots to those athletes who have high ranks in their respective weight classes. So, this is the process of qualification for boxing competitions and the whole process will wind up in this particular format at the Paris Boxing Olympics 2024.
