For the first time at an Olympic Games, the 10 men's Boxing events at London 2012 will be joined by three women's events: women's Fly, women's Middle, and women's Light.
 

Seven British boxers have so far qualified for the men's competition at London 2012, following the men's Olympic qualifier in Turkey in April 2012. 

 

In the women's competition, middleweight Savannah Marshall, lightweight Natasha Jonas and flyweight Nicola Adams all have the chance to qualify for the Games at the world championships in China in May. All entries will be confirmed following the sport entries deadline on 9 July 2012.

The Boxing competition begins on Saturday 28 July and runs until Sunday 12 August. Medal events will take place on 9, 10 and 11 August.
