BoxingEdit

Hungary qualified five boxers for the Olympic boxing tournament. Szellő qualified at the World Championships.[2] Varga and Kalucza brought the Hungarian boxing squad up to four by qualifying at the first European qualifying event.[3] Bedák was the fifth and final Hungarian to join the team, at the 2nd European tournament.[4]
