The boxers had to compete in a minimum of 5 events in WSB and if their rating was even after the end of the Regular Season, the TKOs and KOs helped differentiate the top ranked boxer.
Cuban boxers won 5 quota places, Russian boxers - 3 and Ireland - 2, while Azerbaijan, Croatia, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco and Puerto Rico boxers won one quota place each.
12 out of the 17 boxers competed in every match in order to win the quota place.
The National Federations may also send another boxer in the same weight category to the Continental and the AIBA World Boxing Championships.
Should this another boxer also wins a quota place for Rio 2016 Olympic Games via AIBA World Boxing Championships, the respective National Olympic Committee will then have to choose between the two boxers and confirm their selected boxer to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games no later than December 4, 2015.
