Women Boxing Ready for 2020 Tokyo Olympics, 2 New Weight Classes Planned

The way things are shaping up, it seems that women boxing is gearing up for big time. Aside from the breakout win of Cecilia Braekhus over Farias to extend her clean slate in Norway, the women boxing gets dose of fresh news. It has been recently announced that boxing in the women side
extra attention in the next Olympics to be held at Tokyo, Japan. In the next Olympics, boxers, industry watchers and even bettors can count on five weight classes in the women division, and of this number, two are considered new weight classes. Boxers and coaches can now look at the horizon and train their women boxers in the 57 kg and the 69 kg classes.

      Gender equality, improved access to sporting competitions

In a statement released by IOC President Thomas Bach, he noted that this is an important milestone not just in boxing but also in sports in general. He shared that this is a great step towards the evolution and the improvement of the Olympic program, and helps boost gender equality in the field of sports, particularly in boxing. This is not the first time that the IOC has moved in favor of improved gender equality. Last year, it was also announced that it added five new sports to the calendar like Sports Climbing, Baseball, Softball, Surf, Karate and Skateboard. It is believed that by adding these new sporting disciplines through voting, they can help improve the status of gender equality in the games. These recent moves will increase the number of mixed-gender events, and will also allow more opportunities for women to join the premier sporting event.

Thanks to this new move from the organization, the sporting community can count on an increase of 15 sporting events, which will effectively reduce the number of athletes, but will surely increase the number of women who will participate in the games. In fact, it is expected that the Tokyo edition will feature the highest number of women participants. Also, the number of mixed events will grow to 18, and all these events will still use the same venues. With more events coming, especially events focused on women, there will also be an increase in viewership and attendance among women, and by extension, this news will also be thrilling for bettors who want to see an expanded role of women in sports.

Expect a boost in sports betting action for women boxing

Sports betting on boxing is primarily focused on men, particularly on professional boxers like Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather, and the upcoming bout between Pacquiao and Jeff Horn. Although this is the trend, the recent developments in boxing reveals an increasing attention in women’s boxing and betting.

Just recently, women boxing got its own share of online news and noise thanks to the highly publicized bout between Cecilia Braekhus and Farias, with lots of bets placed on the outcome of the bout. With a decision from Braekhus and the planned addition of two weight classes for women, bettors’ attention on women boxing will definitely increase. Should you also decide to get involved in sports betting, it’s best to consider for the
best betting offers, or even free bets whenever possible.

The best betting offers are those that will give you better returns, without having to spend your own bankroll. Traditionally, the best offers come for free, which should allow you to play the outcomes without risking your bankroll. But it can also come in different forms, which can simplify your betting adventure. To enjoy these offers, you should know the right sites to check, and sign up with a Sportsbook that offers the best betting platform, including tools. In sports betting, tools are equally important. Tools like calculators, statistics, news and free odds are also helpful just like other popular betting offers. These tools and betting offers help promote an informed bettor in the market.

With these announcements and direction toward
gender balancing, players and bettors can count on an exciting Tokyo Olympics. As of press time, Tokyo Olympics will see 8 weight categories for men, and another 5 weight categories for women. In short, boxing has been redefined for the new generation, a sport that helps in ordering gender equality.
