Olympic BoxingEdit

Boxing has been contested at every Summer Olympic Games since its introduction to the program at the 1904 Summer Olympics, except for the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, because Swedish law banned the sport at the time.The boxing competition is organized as a set of tournaments, one for each weight class. There have been between 5 and 12 Olympic weight classes over the years (currently 11), and the definition of each class has changed several times, as shown in the following table. Until 1936, weights were measured in pounds, and from 1948 onwards, weights were measured in kilograms.
