Can't wait for the playoffs. Sick of seeing shitty teams like the Knockouts and Desert Hawks get trounced.

Berinchyk can't be in a bad fight, incredibly entertaining fighter. His German opponent was very game as well, took a good beating.

Must see TV

BORKED

Usyk gets the stoppage. Brechlin isn't anything special but he went the distance against Hrgovic.

Berinchyuk and Lomachenko are in the same weightclass??? They have not even used Khytrov at middleweight yet.

I didn't think Khytrov was a part of it? In the amateurs Berinchyk was 64kg and Lomachenko was 60kg, since one division finishes at 61kg and the next starts at 67kg they ended up in the same group. They've fought each other before as well, the video is on youtube.

60, 64, 69KG in Ukraine is stacked and alot of them fight in more than one weightclass.

Khytrov was listed on the WSB and Ukrainian sites as being on the team but he hasnt fought yet and is no longer listed on the WSB site as being on their roster. With Mytrofanov, Golub and Stretskyy they're as good as any MW linup in WSB, Derevyanchenko is the MW king and Mytrofanov got robbed against him, i had him winning 4-1.

I just want to see Khytrov go pro.

^^ Thanks guys!

Real wealth of potential pro talent on Ukraine's squad. Excited to see Loma and Usyk fight bigger guys. They are definitely undersized in their reapective divisions.

Odd how Khytrov has gone AWOL!

Big lads are rumbling tonight.

6'5" Croatian sensation Filip Hrgovic represents Kazakhstan against Great Britain's 6'5" Joe Joyce. Both are unbeaten this season. Someone's 0 has gotta go!

Hrgovic's last conquest:

Joyce's:

Maxwell vs Mussafirov - should be a competitive fight. 50/50 don't know who will get this.

Evans vs Bairkhanov - On paper Evans should be a huge favourite but i think Bairkhanov is actually going to be a hard fight. If Evans wins this easy ill be impresed

Kamara vs Sep - On paper Sep should be favourite but Kamara is a decent boxer and big so it may be difficult for the undersized pressure fighter Sep to impose himself. Close fight too i think

Joyce vs Hrgovic - Joyce has good size, is well rounded and decent but not as polished as Hrgovic and i think it wil show. Uk's Joyce and Fa are both good HW's but not good enough to beat the elite WSB HW's.

So the overall meet is pretty much a toss-up?

Selby, Evans and Hrgovic should win, the other 2 are toss ups and the Evans fight will be a bigger test than expected imo.

Important week too as #3 Uk and #4 Ukraine have the same number of individual wins and losses but UK have one more team win. If they lose the team matchup its possible for Ukraine to move ahead of them this week. Whoever finishes 4th will fight Azerbaijan in the QF of the playoffs, 3rd faces Mexico.
