BOXING CAPSULE

 WHERE: Sydney Exhibition Centre, Darling Harbour.

 WHEN: Sept. 16-Oct. 1.

 MEDALS: Awarded in 12 weight classes. Both losing semifinalists in each class receive bronze medals.

 OUTLOOK: Cuban heavyweight Felix Savon, a four-time world champion, is trying to become the third three-time Olympic champion. U.S. boxers have not won more than one gold medal since they got three in 1988 in Seoul. The United States and Cuba are the only countries that will have full 12-boxer teams. For the first time, boxers had to qualify for the games in a series of tournaments in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania. Cuba, as the world's top-ranked team, didn't have to qualify.
