Boxing at the 2004 Summer Olympics took place in the Peristeri Olympic Boxing Hall. The event was only open to men and bouts were contested over four rounds of two minutes each. Five judges scored the fighters in real time and the boxer with the most points at the end was the winner.

Three days before the Games opening ceremony the International Olympic Committee announced that Kenyan boxer David Munyasia had tested positive for cathine and has been excluded from the event.[1]

Several medalists at the 2004 Olympics, including Amir Khan, Andre Ward, Gennady Golovkin, and Guillermo Rigondeaux, later went on to become world champions in professional boxing.
