In the past, the United States consistently had one of the most formidable Olympic Boxing teams in the world. Fighters like Sugar Ray Leonard, Evander Holyfield, Oscar De La Hoya, Pernell Whitaker and Andre Ward, just to name a few, were all previous US gold medal winners. 

However, the U.S. hasn't won a gold medal at the Olympics since 2004 (Andre Ward), and only had one medal in 2008, a bronze from heavyweight Deontay Wilder.

This year's team has a lot of talent, and with boxers qualifying in nine out of a possible 10 divisions, there will be plenty of medal opportunities. So, here are the U.S. boxers who are most likely to win a medal at the 2012 London Olympics.
