TOP CLASS INTERNATIONAL BOXING HEADING TO WALES AS BRITISH LIONHEARTS BRING WORLD SERIES BOXING TO NEWPORT
Top class international boxing is coming to Wales this spring when the British Lionhearts take-on the French Fighting Roosters in the World Series of Boxing (WSB) on Saturday 14 April 2018 at the Newport Centre.
Three time European Champion (2011, 2015 and 2017) and world championship medallist (2013, 2015, 2017), Joe Ward of Ireland and 2016 GB Boxing Champion, Cyrus Pattinson, have been confirmed in the Lionhearts team that will compete on the night.
The British Lionhearts squad that competes in WSB is made-up of boxers from the GB Boxing Olympic squad along with a number of overseas selections, including Ward.
WSB is a global team boxing competition contested by the world’s leading amateur boxers. It bridges the gap between Olympic and professional boxing and boxers compete without vests or head guards over five three-minute rounds. A WSB match is contested over five bouts and the team that wins three or more is the winner.
A group of up-and-coming Welsh boxers will also have the chance to experience competing in a big fight atmosphere at the same event with an undercard of amateur boxing featuring Wales versus England.
The undercard contests will take place under amateur boxing rules (3x3 minute rounds) before the five-bout WSB match (5x3 minute rounds) between the Lionhearts and the Roosters. Three bouts have been confirmed and the Welsh team will represent clubs in Rhonnda, Llandudno and Shotton.
