Default World Series Of Boxing Season 3 Discussion & News

I have my problems with WSB like most but the fact is alot of world class amatuers and damn good boxers are fighting in it this season and quality boxing is quality boxing. Keep in mind it's no headgear, 5 rounds, pro scoring and rules.

WSB has a Youtube Channel where they post all the events and fights

Week 1 is happening this weekend and i watched Ukraine vs Kazakhstan here is a great fight to show what you can see in WSB. I had Mytrofanov winning 4-1 and thought it was a robbery but the fight itself was great.

Any idea when Lomachenko, Usyk and Khytrov are fighting? I had a look at the schedule but could only see the Ukraine B team on there.

The main team have been travelling from Oblast to Oblast all over Ukraine to promote boxing ever since the Olympics so they haven't had much time to train. Doesn't sound like they'll fight for at least another month. In the LW division Ukraine literally has five 1st rate boxers or Kazakhstan with their 4 HW's which kind of sucks because alot of them won't get to fight very much.

I'm suprised Khytrov is listed on their team. After his getting robbed at the Olympics he was never mentioned with all the WSB talk and i assumed he didn't want any part of AIBA run boxing. To make things worse in week 1 Ukraine's MW Mytrofanov got robbed Khytrov looks to have very good one punch power though and got alot of stoppages even with headgear on so hopefully he'll be KPTFO and the judges won't be an issue.

We could get the Lomachenko vs Selimov rubbermatch finally or them against Nevin or Taylor with Vasyl and Taylor being 2 Olympic Gold medallists. Usyk fighting at SHW against giants like Medzhidov, Hrgovic, Dychko. There's some awesome fights that will take place this season.

How do you think Usyk's chin will hold up against the bigger guys? I think Beterbiev's power really shook Usyk in the fights they've had...

Fights and boxers worth watching

Nistor is the guy who stopped Anthony Joshua at the European Championship. He beats Tony Yoka up for 5 rounds and loses a decision . High action entertaining fight though

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCCCTm3m59s&list=PL61Eyk2IZtYIaqzodTzpFrmXSCkQZDtSk&index=22[/ame]



Good MW Fights

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxVjxxWqXgA[/ame]


Golub is just all around brutal and punishing especially those body shots

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-N8lR2Pw9w&list=PL61Eyk2IZtYIaqzodTzpFrmXSCkQZDtSk&index=24[/ame]

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81efo2kkxMA&list=PL61Eyk2IZtYIaqzodTzpFrmXSCkQZDtSk&index=28[/ame]

LW

Dow is an Olympian and Matviychuk has been stuck in Lomachenko's shadow but is a real good fighter himself.

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g-TckeJYtcc&list=PL61Eyk2IZtYIaqzodTzpFrmXSCkQZDtSk&index=25[/ame]

Good LHW fight. Benchabla is quality

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgEtppBwELU&list=PL61Eyk2IZtYIaqzodTzpFrmXSCkQZDtSk&index=27[/ame]

HW Pfeifer Olympian

WSB is a Pro/Am League filled with alot of Olympians and world class amateur boxers that fight on a weekly basis under pro rules, not some shitty pro tournament prizefighter style with mediocre HW's.

I'm really impressed with Joe Ward (Lionhearts) and Hrgovic (Astana Arlans)


Overall, I'm enjoying this season- WSB proved to be a great formula. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the amateur stars who joined recently (Usyk, Lomachenko etc etc...)

Ya Ward got a good win against Szello but i havent watched his most recent bout yet. He didnt look as fast as i remembered him from when i saw him as an amateur a year or two ago. Im interested in seeing him against guys like Gvozdyk, Rouzbahini and Benchabla. Also really looking forward to seeing the Lw guys like Taylor, Selimov, Valentino, Lomachenko fight eachother.


Ukraine's top guys will start boxing after the holiday break although MW's Mytrofanov, who got completely robbed against Season 1 and 2 MW Champ Derevyanchenko, and Ivan Golub have both looked impressive in their fights. Check out Mytrofanov vs Mclaughlin that i posted and the Golub fight.

It would be very interesting to see Selimov fight Lomachenko again, without the headgear.
I haven't seen Golub fight yet, so I'll definitely check him out.

Do you know why Kazakhstan took the best HW's??? Their roster is stacked, with Dychko, Hrgovic, Nistor, Myrsatayev & Kapitanenko... Quite a waste

I really think Lomachenko will handle Selimov if they fight in WSB. No idea why they have 4 top HW's but because teams fight every week they have to switch boxers so it doesnt really prevent many fights that otherwise woould have happened. Unlike most teams Kaz will just be able to have a 1st rate HW all the time and Medzhidov Pfeifer, Usyk, Russo, Yoka there's lots of good fights to be made.

Actually Ukraine has a 6'6 HW named Vykhrest that i have never heard of who fought last week and looks good, reminds me of Hrgovic a little. Want to see him tested against the top guys and see what level he's at.

I know Turner looks like a fat joke but he's actually pretty decent.

Yeah he looks pretty nimble for a big guy with a nice shot selection. Seems to be getting tagged far to much for my liking though.

Turner's gotten a lot fitter than he used to be, if he can lose more weight and keep up the pressure better, he could do very well against some of those tall heavyweights.

Joe Ward didn't look great in his first WSB fight, but he was dominant in his second fight. Don't know how good the opponent was, and he looked a bit small, but it was a really impressive performance.

Does anyone know what's going on with the Russian WSB team?

So Loma joined the WSB. Didn't knew that
I guess he wants to go for a 3rd Olympic gold?

Nah the word is that he's testing out the WSB for a season before turning proper pro in 2014.
