With a year to go to the Olympics, we consider who are the contenders for gold medals at Tokyo 2020

Meet the personalities at the heart of the sport

Meet the personalities at the heart of the sport


John Dennen @BoxingNewsJD

IN just a year’s time, on August 9 2020 at the Kokugikan Arena, the historic sumo venue in Tokyo, the new Olympic boxing gold medallists will be decided.

There is at long last clarity that an Olympic boxing competition will take place. AIBA brought boxing perilously close to being expelled from the Games, the tournament will go ahead (although AIBA has been suspended from administering the Olympic event). It is therefore time to turn our attention to the boxing itself and consider which athletes will come to the fore. With 12 months to go and a tough qualification process too, it is hard to predict who will emerge as champions. But here we pick out some names, none of whom have won Olympic gold medals before but who will be worth looking out for.
