The ones listed were on pro cards with pro refs and judges...and scheduled for 4, not the standard WSB 5...

Are you sure those were WSB? He may have simply turned pro in November.

I like the format, its generally of a much higher standard than these guys would be facing if they turned pro instead. They dont face any journeymen & are up against ambitious & skilled opponents.

I went to GB Lionhearts 1st home game & had a great night, saw 5 good fights & was impressed at the overall level of competition. I really hope the WSB catches on & becomes more popular.

When I watched VVarrens debut the commentators said it wasn't his pro debut as he'd in the WSB,

It must've been rectified or boxrec just havent acknowledged em

The LW's Matviychuk, Kyslytsyn and MW's Mytrofanov, Golub are all 1st rate guys so Lomachenko, Berinchyk and Khytrov just give them ridiculous depth but HW, LHW and BW are weak without them so they've been losing the team compititions because of it.

I was at the last one in Earls Court, place was busy but very small, if there's another one in London I'd definitely go again

Ukrainian LHW Vyacheslav Shabranskyy who fought in WSB last season has since turned pro. Getting experience in WSB was better for him than fighting 10 tomato cans to start of his pro career imo.

Both guys are 3x National Champions in Ukraine and Uzbekistan. Lou Dibella commenting

Who impressed you most? I thought Selby was fantastic & Ward looks very classy.

I want to go the GB-Ukraine match, depending on where its held.

Selby without a doubt, his work rate & defines were amazing, looked real real top class.

David Oliver Joyce who beat Sam Maxwell, he looks like a solid pro as well.

Ward picks his shots well but lacks killer instinct should've disposed of the Algerian earlier but can't complain he put on a good show

All in all good event, all competitive fights apart from selby's, liked it that it's our team rather supporting just one person
