The IOC Boxing Task Force for Europe met on the 15.02.21 and it was announced that subject to IOC executive committee ratification, the qualifying tournament due to take place for European boxers will not be held in April. Instead, it will take place in June and the scheduled World qualifying event will not be held.

The quota places that were to be on offer at the World qualifier will now be allotted to the continental confederations to allocate. It is envisaged these final places will be awarded to the highest ranking boxer non- qualified at each weight.

The ranking points published in February 2020 along with ranking points achieved at the qualifying event itself will be used to determine the highest-ranking boxer at each weight.
