The International Boxing Association will allow all 11 of Russia’s boxers to compete in Rio.

That’s the news coming out of Switzerland, where the AIBA cleared two female and nine male boxers after an anti-doping investigation.

Five of the men are expected to compete for medals, including gold contenders Vitaly Dunaytsev (141 lbs) and Evgeny Tishchenko (201 lbs).

Boxing begins Saturday and runs through Aug. 21.
