WATCH: Top Boxing moments from the 2016 Rio Olympic Games
Olympic boxing had a great number of stories and fights worth highlighting this XXXI Olympiad. The U.S. men’s team went from a complete shut-out in 2012 to winning two medals in Rio, and reigning champion Claressa Shields dominated the middleweight division to retain her Olympic championship.
A shocking loss for one of Ireland’s top ranked, a dabbing boxer winning a bronze medal and a Kenyan boxer with some serious dance moves in his corner making it to the quarterfinals were only a few of the great moments we saw in the Riocentro, and there are many more easily found on NBCOlympics.com.
