Rio 2016 Summer Olympics Boxing Schedule for men and women

Ongoing changes in the boxing sport in the Summer Olympics that would impact on Rio 2016

As we wait for the coming Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, there are various debates on boxing sport as regards to the Summer Olympics. These debates that have been going on will impact on the Rio games. Below are some of the ranging debates on the Summer Olympics boxing sport.

Rio Summer Olympics Boxers may fight without headgear

After 3 years of research, the International Olympics Council (IOC) which is the organization in charge of regulating Olympics have given out a statement that men boxers can fight without head guards. The above mentioned research, said the IOC spokesperson that it was not concussive and hence even the men amateurs boxers can fight without the head protection.

Anyway, they have fought without headgear in some other competitive sports including the Glasgow Commonwealth Games.

Professional boxers may fight in the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics boxing sports

Besides the headgear rule, Wu Ching-Kuo, who is the president of the boxing amateur governing body is pushing for change that would see professional fighter participate and fight in Summer Olympics boxing sport. This has attracted attention from professional boxers across the globe with the Philippines professional boxer; Emmanuel Dapidran "Manny" Pacquiao, commonly known as Manny Pacquiao saying he would be honored if allowed to fight in the 2016 Rio Summer Olympics boxing sport. This would be prolonging his boxing career by more 4 months as he was planning to retire after his April fight with Timothy Bradley; an American professional boxer with two welterweight WBO and 2 light welter WBC titles.

Besides beating other professional boxers like Juan Manuel Márquez Méndez, Bradley dealt a blow by winning in fight with Manny in a 9th of June, 2012 WBO welterweight title match.

Hence the two changes, of allowing men boxers to fight without head gear and participation of professional boxers will change the boxing sport in the coming Summer Olympics edition including Rio 2016.

But, that is if boxing remain in the Summer Olympics sports as there were debates to remove it.

In Rio 2016 Summer Olympics, boxing is one of the sports to be feature and players from all over the world will seek the medals. There are 13 scheduled events in this exciting sport in which women will compete in Three Events while men will participate in 10 Events
