Boxing Qualification

Qualification Summary

Each National Olympic Committee can enter a maximum 13 competitors (8 men and 5 women), with a maximum of one athlete per event. As hosts, Japan will be given up to six quotas (4 men and 2 women) to compete, if they fail to qualify normally. This will cause a reduction of quotas given at the World Qualification Tournament. Additionally, eight quotas (5 men and 3 women) will be decided by the Tripartite Commission. The remaining quotas will be decided through various events, specifically, the 2020 Continental Qualification Tournaments and the 2020 World Qualification Tournament.
