Gavin won Britain's first amateur world title last year
Team GB boxing coach Terry Edwards is confident of returning from the Beijing Olympics with medals after unveiling his eight-strong team of boxers.
Super-heavyweight David Price captains a team which also includes lightweight world champion Frankie Gavin.
Edwards, who coached Audley Harrison to gold in 2000 and Amir Khan to silver in 2004, said: "This is the most talented team of boxers in recent years.
"If they box to their potential, they will convert performances to medals."
Light-welterweight Bradley Saunders, light-heavyweight Tony Jeffries and bantamweight Joe Murray, also qualified at the World Amateur Championships.
Welterweight Billy Joe Saunders, flyweight Khalid Yafai and middleweight James DeGale earned their places at February's qualifying tournament in Italy, while Price made it through final qualifying in Athens.
