Olympic Boxing 2016: Dates, Start Times, TV Schedule, Live Stream

Even if you’re not a boxing fanatic, chances are you’ve heard of guys like Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao.

But with both fighters in the twilight of their careers, the door is open for a new superstar to emerge. And the 2016 Olympics might be the perfect place for that to happen.

Rio de Janeiro will host some of the world’s best boxers in both the men’s and women’s divisions. Team USA has seen mixed results in recent years; middleweight Claressa Shields took home gold in 2012 in London, but an American male hasn’t won gold since Andre Ward did so in Athens in 2004.

The boxers are spread among 13 weight classes (10 for men, three for women) and will fight over 16 days, starting Saturday, Aug. 6. Here’s how and when to follow all the action.
