On second thought...

Maybe Yunusov gets a W.

Or Bosnjak, considering Lapin has lost all four of his bouts in WSB.

So at best, 2-3.

Ukraine is really sending out their dregs here, and still they should comfortably take the meet.

Some interesting results this weekend; Mex 5-0 Aze, Ger 5-0 GB, Ita 4-1 Kzk & Arg 4-1 Russia.

Does anyone know why the USA-Ukraine match was postponed?

Yunuson vs Kyslytsyn will be close but i favor Kyslytsyn. Him and Matviychuk are very good LW's and could be the #1 and 2 for any team, unfortunately for them they have been at 60kg stuck behind Lomachenko although i think Kyslytsyn has moved up to 64 now and is pretty big.

I favor Bosnjak

A coupe days ago they said the members of Ukraine's team had a delay in aquiring their visas to the US. The plan is to go there and have the fights as soon as they come through. It shouldn't be an issue since all their 3rd and 4th rate guys are fighting so all the 1st and 2nd rate boxers can train together for next weeks important fight against the UK. Only issue might be the coaches since some will have to go with the boxers to the US but i think the coaching staff is deep enough for it not to be a problem.

So after the UK went 0-5 this week if Ukraine vs USA does happen with Ukraine winning then they'll be tied in team wins and Ukraine will lead with at least 3 more individual wins going into the final week 8 match against eachother.

Most importantly Kazakhstan's HW from Romainia Mihai Nistor handed Clemente Russo his first loss in WSB !!! In Nistor's first fight he was utterly robbed against Yoka. The individual fight video hasnt been posted but the event video is and can be seen there.

WSB site lists Solonenko, they usually post the roster on the Ukrainian Boxing Federation website so we should know in a day or two for sure. Slightly disappointed that both teams arent using their #1 guys for every weightclass but should still be very good.

Selby vs Ilnytskyy - Easy, easy win for UK here. Why Butsenko isnt fighting idk and Goglyev is better too.

Lomachenko vs Maxwell - Don't know why Nevin or Taylor aren't fighting.

Evans vs Mytrofanov - Real good fight and should be close but i definitely think Golub is a better style matchup against Evans and would be more likely to win than Dmytro.

Ward vs Solonenko - No Gvozdyk or Poyatsyka, if true this is baffling.

Joyce vs Usyk - Fight of the night. Joyce coming off his win over Hrgovic and Usyk facing his first elite SHW and one with great combos and workrate. Will Usyk's speed, footwork and angles limit Joyce's high volume? Against big men who stand in front of him Joyce can throw his 4-6 punch combos at a stationary target, if Usyk uses his angles to land shots and circle out it won't allow Joyce as many oppertuities along with his counter punching which could make Joyce more hesitant to open up. I was skeptical of Usyk at SHW before WSB but he's looked good so far, if he beats Joyce then i will believe he can turn pro at HW and be capable of actually doing something there.

i am not happy gvozdyk wont be fighting as i looked at the flyer and his name was on it..... but its all good still should be a good night and hopefully ukrainians pull out the win as i think the middleweight will decide who is gona win this fixture as i fully expect Lom and Usyk, maxwell and Ward to win so the deciding bout should be the middleweight fight!!!!

Some strange decisions by both teams.

Really dissappointed we wont get to see Ward-Gvodzyk which couldve been excellent. Nevin would give Loma a much tougher fight than Maxwell will.

Evans-Mytrofanov & Joyce-Usyk are both very interesting fights, Evans has been extremely lucky in WSB so far.

Nevin's injured, kept him out of the Irish seniors as well. Even though I really rate Nevin, I think he'd be in huge trouble against Lomachenko at 61kg. Nevin is still a bantamweight.
