Team GB boxing coach Terry Edwards is confident that Amir Khan's silver-medal success at the Athens Games will help raise the sport's profile.
Khan was the star of the show in the Olympic boxing competition, stopping two of his four opponents to set up a final showdown with defending champion Mario Kindelan of Cuba.
The 17-year-old produced another impressive display in the final, but Kindelan is an experienced campaigner and he secured a 30-22 victory to end the young Briton's gold-medal hopes.
However, it could not dampen the enthusiasm of the British supporters, who have followed him throughout the tournament and gave him a rousing reception when he walked out for the medal ceremony.
