Over 100 male and female boxers have qualified for Tokyo 2021.
Please see below attachment for qualified boxers.
The Games were scheduled for this July but will now take place next year, probably next summer, in Tokyo after being postponed because of the coronavirus.
The African and Asia/Oceania qualifiers are completed, while the European qualifiers were partially completed in London last week with 16 of the 77 berths secured before the 43-nation competition was suspended because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Ireland, courtesy of Irish captain Brendan Irvine, claimed one of those places in the flyweight class.
The European qualifiers, when they do resume at a date to be confirmed, will recommence where they stopped, with Kellie Harrington, Michaela Walsh, Dean Gardiner, Kiril Afanasev, Michael Nevin, George Bates, Aidan Walsh, Aoife O’Rourke and Emmet Brennan still in play.
Irvine is also slated to meet Spain Gabriel Escobar, who has also qualified, in the quarter-finals with at least bronze up for grabs.
As things stand, over two-thirds of the European qualifiers, the entire Americas qualification event and the final world qualifier in Paris have yet to be decided before the dust settles on the boxing road to Tokyo.
286 boxers – 186 males and 100 females – will compete at the Games.
