GiveMeSport Women is providing you with several guides on everything you need to know as the Tokyo Olympics get underway.

More than 300 medal events will take place this summer, but let's take a look at the women's boxing tournaments and what to expect.

What are the Tokyo 2020 Olympic women's boxing dates?

The women's boxing is currently into the round of 16, which will get underway tomorrow morning at 3.00 BST up until 09.48 BST.

The quarter and semi-finals will be held across August 3rd-5th before the battle for gold in the final on August 8th.

What is the format of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic women's boxing?

Olympic women's boxing is a single-elimination tournament split into five weight divisions – Flyweight (51kg), Featherweight (57kg), Lightweight (60kg), Welterweight (69kg), and Middleweight (75kg).

Each match consists of three rounds of three minutes each and the winner will progress, with the loser eliminated from the competition. Judges will decide on the winner of each round through a point-scoring system, taking into account the number of blows landed on a target area and technical superiority.

Who should I look out for in the Tokyo 2020 Olympic women's boxing tournaments?

Lauren Price – Great Britain (Middleweight)

Lauren Price

The Welsh-born fighter will be challenging Graham for the Middleweight title this summer and she is the best chance at ending the US star's winning streak.

Lauren Price hasn't lost a bout in years and she has experience in winning gold at the Commonwealth Games, European Games, and World Championships. This will be her first Olympic Games and one that she will be looking to really leave her mark on.

Mira Potkonen – Finland (Lightweight)

Mira Potkonen will be competing in the Lightweight division and stands a good chance at bagging her nation a medal this summer.

Despite many thinking she will struggle due to her age, the 40-year-old has a wealth of knowledge and ring IQ that will be unrivalled in the younger fighters. Potkonen also boats more than 300 amateur bouts, four European gold medals, and an Olympic bronze from Rio 2016.

Beatriz Soares – Brazil (Lightweight)

Beatriz Ferreira

The Lightweight championship will be another heavily-contested series with Brazilian talent Beatriz Soares tipped to grab a medal for her country.

The 28-year-old orthodox has lost just 12 of her 82 amateur bouts, winning the other 70 by knockout. She has fought against Mira Potkonen before but lost to the Finnish star, so she will undoubtedly be hoping to meet her in Tokyo to get her revenge.
