How boxers can qualify for Tokyo 2020

The opening qualification events in Dakar, Senegal, and Amman, Jordan gave us the qualifiers from Africa and Asia/Oceania.

This event in London gives boxers from Europe their chance.

There's also an Americas qualifying tournament scheduled for Buenos Aires, though this has been postponed from its original dates.

For those that don’t make it through their continental event, there will be one final chance to qualify for Tokyo 2020 in Paris.

In London, the semi-finalists in all weight classes guarantee themselves a ticket for Tokyo 2020. Boxers can secure their Olympic spot as early as the quarter-finals in a number of weight categories, as will winners of box-off bouts.

You can read a full preview of this Europe event here.
