Yeah. Very light schedule, comparatively.

Gvozdyk got screwed against Niazymbetov in the SF too and beat him more convincingly than Mekhontsev did in the finals

Artur Beterbiev was in Montreal a few days ago and looks like hes going to go pro there, not sure if with GYM or Interbox i forget. No idea why especially if he plans to fight at CW but good news anyways.

Yes! I'd forgotten about that.

Niyazymbetov leads a charmed life.

Argentina's Peralta is another guy who impressed me at the Olympic thats in WSB, alot of quality LHW's which is 185lbs. Argentina's team has been doing really good i need to start watching some of their fights. Belarusian all action fighter Siarhei Karneyeu who beat up Teymur Mammadov and got terribly robbed, probably the worst of the Olympics, fought in WSB last year but isn't back this season although they can pick guys up during the season so i hope he comes back at some point.

I like the format of WSB more than pro.. its a breath of fresh air, but I dunno if it'll ever pick up enough steam to challenge the current format

Some interesting matches coming up this weekend. Mexico vs Russia, Germany vs Kazakhstan & Ukraine vs GB

Still no Lomachenko but Gvodyk & Usyk are in action.

Its going to be interesting to see how Usyk does against the big boys at superheavy. Uaine Fa is a big, powerful lad & is unbeaten (4-0) in the WSB.

I watched most of the 1st season, and a lil of the 2nd. None so far of the 3rd. I enjoyed the fights well enough I guess, but it was too hard to find them to watch em. And I hate watching after the fact.

This is why they've not caught on.

I guarantee, if major networks showed them live and promoted them it would draw in lots of casuals. As it is, not even many of us diehards bother with it. (and we do shit like wake up at 4am to watch Japanese cards on shitty Keyhole streams!!)

Agreed.

It's suffered from a case of terminal disinterest.

As diagnosed by Dr. Hugivsashitz.

If I remember right, it was on the Versus network. And that seemed to suffer from the same malady. I mean ESPN branch offs show horseshoes and cheerleading ffs. They couldn't get on this?

Versus only showed it tape-delayed. By as much as a week at times.

You can spot a young Joe Ward at 6.40mins shadow boxing.
