The women's flyweight boxing competition at the 2012 Olympic Games in London was held from 5 to 9 August at the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.

For the first time at an Olympic Games, the 10 men's boxing events was joined by three women's events: flyweight, middleweight, and lightweight.[1]

Nicola Adams from Great Britain won the gold medal — the first Olympic gold ever awarded in women's boxing. Adams beat China's Ren Cancan by 16 points to seven in the final.

Competition format[edit]

The competition consisted of a single-elimination tournament. Bronze medals were awarded to both semi-final losers, Marlen Esparza of the United States and Mary Kom of India. Each bout comprised four rounds of two minutes each.[2]
