Female boxers eye London

The International Olympic Committe (IOC) is to decide in August whether women’s boxing will be part of the 2012 London Olympics.

The IOC will consider a request by the International Boxing Association (IABA) and then advise the executive board further. The Board is scheduled to meet in Berlin on August 13.

Of the 26 Summer Olympic sports federations  organising competitions in London, boxing is the only one without female participants.
