Competition formatEdit

Like all Olympic boxing events, the competition was a straight single-elimination tournament.[2] This event consisted of 26 boxers who have qualified for the competition through various qualifying tournaments held in 2015 and 2016. The competition began with a preliminary round on 13 August, where the number of competitors was reduced to 16, and concluded with the final on 21 August. As there were fewer than 32 boxers in the competition, a number of boxers received a bye through the preliminary round. Both semi-final losers were awarded bronze medals.


All times are Brasília Time (UTC−3).
