London Olympics: BoxingThe London 2012 Boxing events take place at the ExCeL Centre in the River Zone from Saturday 28 July to Sunday 12 August - and for the first time in Olympic history there will be a women's competition as well as the ever-popular men's programme. Men will battle it out in the ring across 10 weight categories, from Light Fly Weight (46-49kg) to Super Heavy Weight (over 91kg). The inaugural women's competition will feature three weights: Fly Weight (48-51kg), Light Weight (57-60kg) and Middle Weight (69-75kg). Some of the best boxers in history cut their teeth on the Olympic stage, including Muhammad Ali (1960), George Foreman (1968) and Oscar de la Hoya (1992), who all took gold. That said, Great British fighter Audley Harrison also won gold in Sydney 2000 but followed up with a decidedly less brilliant heavyweight career.
