World silver-medallist Amit Panghal in the 52-kilogram category has been given the top billing in the men's competition while the iconic M C Mary Kom in 51 kg seeded second in the women's event of the Asian Olympic Qualifiers for boxing starting at Amman in Jorden tomorrow.
 
Eight men and five women from India will be aiming to secure Tokyo Olympics berths at the continental event being conducted by the International Olympic Committee's (IOC) Boxing Task Force.

While Panghal is the lone Indian man to be seeded, two-time world bronze-medallist Lovlina Borgohain in 69 kg and Pooja Rani in 75 kg category have been seeded second and fourth in the women's competition.

The Indian team arrived in Jordan on Friday last week after a training stint in Assisi, Italy, a country battling the Novel Coronavirus outbreak which has claimed over 3,000 lives across the world since being discovered in Wuhan, China.

The tournament has 63 quota places on offer and a boxer will be assured for a Tokyo ticket on reaching the semifinals stage. In some weight categories, depending on the size of the draw, there could be box-offs between losing quarter-finalists to decide the Olympic berths.
