GB Boxing have a special team in Tokyo. I believe any one of them could medal, but if I had to pick one to win gold it would be Pat McCormack. What a story it would be for Frazer Clarke though. Oleksandr Khyzhniak and the Russia’s Albert Batyrgaziev are my other tips for gold. But come on Team GB!
I think the McCormack brothers are some of the most talented fighters GB has seen in a long time and have got a great chance of gold, as well as big Frazer Clarke.
Pat McCormack, Frazer Clarke and Peter McGrail. All have been outstanding through qualifiers and major tournaments in the build up. I can see Ben Whittaker has the talent and Galal Yafai has the experience to knock on the door too. GB’s women have bundles of talent, I think any of them can medal.
For GB, the favourites to get a gold have to be Pat McCormack and Lauren Price. I think Ben Whittaker can be the star of the Games if he gets a good draw. Ireland have a smaller team but keep an eye on Kurt Walker, Kellie Harrington and the Walsh siblings – Aidan and Michaela.
