Can the World Series of Boxing reinvigorate the amateur fight game? - Boxing - Yahoo! Canada Sports#mwpphu-post-form#mwpphu-post-form#mwpphu-post-form#mwpphu-post-formTwo of the worst Olympic boxing performances ever by the United States have been the last two games, the 2004 Athens Olympics and the 2008 Beijing Olympics. In 2004, the U.S.A. boxing team took home only two medals, a gold and a bronze, and in 2008 the U.S. won only one medal, a bronze.
