Rio Olympics: Male boxers will not wear protective headguards

London: Male boxers will not wear protective headgear at Rio 2016 after the International Olympic Committee ratified the rule change by the sport's governing body.

The International Boxing Association (AIBA) adopted the change for amateur fighters three years ago but ruled that female fighters will continue to wear headgear, Xinhua reported.

Boxers have worn headgear in every Olympics since the 1984 Los Angeles Games.
