2012 Olympic Boxing TV Schedule

Boxing is always one of my favourite Olympic events. It is a true amateur event in a sport dominated by professionals. You get to see the best up-and-coming boxers from around the world, plus the very best from Cuba who fight as amateurs for their entire career. Even as someone who has grown tired of pro boxing, the Olympic boxing tournament still gets me excited every four years. Too add to the intrigue, women’s boxing makes its Olympic debut in London. Canada’s Mary Spencer is considered to be one of the top women’s fighters in the world in the middleweight division.

Jim Van Horne, Russ Anber and Kara Ro will call Olympic boxing on CTV. Van Horne is pulling double-duty, also calling show jumping. Anber is an Olympic broadcasting veteran serving as the boxing analyst for CBC/TSN during past Olympics.
