1904

Boxing was first featured in the Modern Olympics in 1904. Boxing has been contested at every Summer Olympic Games since its introduction to the program, except for the 1912 Summer Olympics in Stockholm, because Swedish law banned the sport at the time. The 2008 Summer Olympics were the final games with boxing as a male only event. Since the 2012 Summer Olympics, women's boxing is part of the program.
