After bringing home four medals from Tokyo, USA Boxing’s High Performance staff now looks to the next generation of Olympic hopefuls leading into the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris.

The first step will be the 2021 Elite Men’s and Women’s World Championships, with the Men’s World Championships scheduled for Oct. 24-Nov. 6 in Belgrade, Serbia, while the Women’s World Championships dates will be finalized in the coming weeks.
