AIBA/World Olympic Qualifier Starts Tonight
There is one more hurdle before the three women’s Olympic boxing team members can state they are going to London.
The AIBA Women’s World Championships starts Wednesday in Qinhuangdao, China. (Tuesday night in the U.S.).
U.S. Qualifiers lightweight Queen Underwood (Seattle, WA), flyweight Marlen Esparza (Houston, TX) and middleweight Claressa Shields (Flint, MI) will hope to make the cut as only 8 in each division will continue to the Olympic Games. AIBA will be posting videos of the semi-finals and finals on the same day on delay.
We will have live coverage on our boxing section of Wombat Sports starting Tuesday night.
