Boxing Road to Paris qualification series comes to an end in Bangkok, Thailand.


The 2nd World Qualification Tournament came to an end in Bangkok, Thailand, yesterday, assigning the last 51 quota places at stake in the Boxing Road to Paris qualification series.

The qualification pathway started in 2023, with the European Games, the Asian Games, the Pan American Games, the Pacific Games, and an ad-hoc African qualifier in Dakar serving as continental qualification stages. It then continued in 2024 with two World Qualification Tournaments – in Busto Arsizio, Italy, and Bangkok, Thailand – eventually providing every athlete with up to three different qualification opportunities.

Over 2,000 boxers from 172 NOCs, the Boxing Refugee Team, and Individual Neutral Athletes took part in the Boxing Road to Paris qualification series, totaling 2,115 bouts across seven tournaments in five continents over two years, with 239 quota places awarded. Nine Universality Places are to be confirmed at a later stage, and one additional place will be distributed to the IOC Olympic Refugee Team, completing the lineup of 249 boxers that will compete in the Paris 2024 Boxing Tournament.

Both the Boxing Road to Paris qualification series and the Olympic Games Paris 2024 boxing tournament are sanctioned and organized under the authority of the IOC Paris 2024 Boxing Unit (PBU).
