Boxing at the 1991 Pan American Games

Boxing pictogram.svg

The Men's Boxing Tournament at the 1991 Pan American Games was held in Havana, Cuba from August 2 to August 18. It served as a qualification tournament for the 1992 Summer Olympics. The number one and two earned a ticket for the Barcelona Games. The host country dominated the boxing event, winning all weight divisions except for one: the Light Welterweight (– 63.5 kg).

QualificationEdit

Shannon Briggs became one of a few boxers to ever qualify for the Games finale, thus gaining the silver medal already, without any competition. His Cuban opponent, Félix Savón, while being regarded much higher by the world amateur rankings, had to fight a semifinal bout.[1]
