The Argentine side’s stylish light flyweight Junior Zarate has been a fixture of the national team since 2007, and he got the night off to the perfect start for the hosts, avenging a Season V defeat at the hands of Poland's Dawid Jagodzinski with a unanimous points win over his rival.
With the score at 3-0 the Polish side refused to lie down, and middleweight legend Tomasz Jablonski was the man to steady the ship with a comprehensive win over the hosts’ WSB debutant Joaquin Lingua. Already qualified for Rio 2016, Jablonski was in ruthless form, with the brave Lingua content to have five rounds of high-level international experience under his belt.
Another of Poland’s big-hitters then ensured the visitors went home with what could be a vital point in the context of the group qualification race. Igor Jakubowski had a clear physical advantage over Argentina’s heavyweight stand-in Dario Alcapan, and he made it count as he frustrated the Argentine, who was eventually disqualified in the fourth round of a brave battle.
