Four more boxers sealed their spots at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games on the final day of the African Olympic boxing qualification event in Dakar.

Box-offs took place in four divisions - women's flyweight and men's featherweight, welterweight and light-heavyweight with the winners of the box-off fights securing their Olympic berths.

In the men's light-heavyweight category Mohamed Assaghir of Morocco won the box-off via a unanimous points decision against Ghana's Shakul Samed.

The Olympic Channel reported that the fight featured 'almost no defence, but plenty of attacking.'

Samed dominated the first round before Assaghir took control of the second.

The final round saw Samed floored twice, reportedly through exhaustion, rather than punches, however despite landing a huge right hook on Assaghir in the final stages, the Moroccan fighter held on to get the verdict.

The men's welterweight box-off was also a tight affair with Shadiri Bwogi of Uganda winning via a unanimous points decision against Ghanaian Jessie Lartey.

Bwogi dominated rounds two and three to get the verdict from the judges and become the first Ugandan boxer to qualify for the Olympics.

The judges were also needed to decide the men's featherweight box-off between Samuel Takyi of Ghana and Isaac Masembe of Uganda.

After Takyi dominated round one and Masembe controlled round two, it came down to the final round.

The judges sided with Takyi who landed two strong right hands in the final moments of the contest.

The remaining box-off was in the first fight of the day - the women's flyweight category - between Christine Ongare of Kenya and Catherine Nanziri of Uganda.

Ongare dominated the majority of the contest to take a unanimous points decision and book her place at the Olympic Games.

In total, 33 boxers qualified for the Olympics through the event at Dakar Arena - with the standout countries being Algeria, who qualified seven boxers and Morocco who qualified six.

The next Olympic boxing qualifying event is for the Asia and Oceania regions and takes place at the Prince Hamza Hall in Amman in Jordan, starting on Tuesday March 3.

Further Olympic qualifying events will then take place in London in England, Buenos Aires in Argentina and Paris in France.
