David, unfortunately women boxing is not in the cards at the Athens Olympics. However, Indian men have qualified for the Olympics in the past and we can expect a few to be in Athens. The men's boxing qualifying tournament is from January 11 to 18, 2004.

Akhil Kumar entered the semifinals in 51 kg category of the qualifying
boxing tournament at Guangzhou in China.
Mohd Ali Qamar (48kg), Diwakar Prasad (54kg), Vijender (60kg), Ramanand (64kg) and Jitender Kumar (81kg) also reached the quarterfinals in their respective categories.

Both the finalists will qualify for Olympics. So One last hurdle for Akhil.

Of the five, three more entered semis. Big hope Qamar lost.

Heard that a third boxer, the loser in the semis to the eventual gold winner will also qualify for the Olympics.

So from four semifinalists, lets hope for the best.

Remember Gurcharan Singh who did well in the 2000 Olympics?

Well he's doing well in proffessional boxing in America, undefeated after 17 fights also he is ranked 39 in the world.

This is good because he dissapeared after 2000 and now he is making a name in america, his record is this link

Even English champion Audley Harisson says "Punjab born giant Gurcharan Singh is slowly emerging as India’s first heavyweight of note" How good is that!, even if he is cruiserweight fighter

Wow! Undefeated after 17 fights. That's pretty good, but he probably needs to take on some bigger names to move up the rankings.
Evander Holyfield too was a cruiser-weight until just before he fought for the big heavyweight crown against James "Buster" Douglas in 1990. (I think "Cruiserweight" was created only in the 1980s or so, and Holyfield of course remains undefeated in that division!).

Damnit. Does this mean I have to start following that one sport that I REALLY HATE (mostly because of the murky ways in which the fight organizers run the sport)?

Go Gurcharan. Many thanks for the alert Mulikt. Didn't have any clue about this one.

I had to box in school because it was mandatory for the "boarders" but I hated the sport then and I still have not liked it. Most physicians have attempted to ban boxing because it is the only modern sport where one of the goals is to hurt the opponent in order to win. The American Medical Association along with other medical associations have urged IOC and other bodies to ban the sport. There is ample medical evidence based on CT scan and MRI scan of brain of boxers that there is long lasting damage to the brain. Protective head gear is mandatory in amateur boxing but is not allowed in professional boxing. There is so much illegal money (gambling) in professional boxing that cricket takes a back seat to it. No wonder that most fights take place in Las Vegas, Atlantic City or Reno.

Boxing is a great way to stay in shape and many people now train as a boxer but never fight in the ring. Boxing is popular among army people all over the world because it teaches many skills that are necessary for a soldier - aggression, confidence, ability to take and give punishment, physical conditioning, etc.

It great that he's doing well, he can open doors for other indian boxers going proffessional. Even if he can't now compete in Olympics he still represents India when he fights

Boxing is a great sport even if it causes head injury, i think it is probably the purest sport in the world, 2 men using their fists to win. Anyone who does martial art knows boxing is about skill also power and its good self defense for even women.

Imagine Gurcharan can become world champion in a Delhi match? it will be huge
