WBAN is celebrating one of the most significant and important history-firsts in the sport when for the first time female boxers will be competing in the Olympics and held as a medal event.  In the 2012 Olympics that will take place in London this summer, there will be three weight classes of female boxers vying for the "Gold" in the flyweight (106-112 pounds), lightweight (123-132 pounds), and middleweight (152-165 pounds) division. 

The women's weight classes are not consecutive, meaning that a female boxer will have to fit into one of the designated ranges in order to compete. Boxing will be held at the ExCeL Exhibition Center in London.

WBAN will have all major coverage of the female boxers on the "WBAN OLYMPIC REPORT" site, with reports, photos, videos, and more.

"Every sport and activity should be evaluated for its worth before it is offered to children and youth. However, no segment of youth should be denied participation because of their sex. The trend of society and the Equal Rights Movement leaves no doubt that, in the future, girls and women will compete on an equal level with boys and men in all areas of business, politics and sports.  Trailblazer and advocate for female boxers - Doyle Weaver  1973"
