The Azeri team have won their last three home fixtures in the competition, while the out of form USA Knockouts have lost four of their last five matches.
As well as team glory, there are also huge ramifications for the individual boxers competing who have hopes of qualifying for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games through WSB.
Guba Olympic Complex, Guba is the venue for this Group B clash, where on Saturday 11th April fans across the world can watch the action free, live and on demand from 19:00 (GMT +5) at AIBABoxingTV.com.
Venegas III is level on points with two other boxers in the Flyweight standings so he will want to win convincingly against Murad Rabadanov to keep his Olympic chances alive and move away from the chasing pack.
The American has won all three of his home matches this season, but has lost his two away fixtures.
WSB veteran Albert Selimov is one of the most successful boxers in the history of the competition, and the Azeri athlete leads the Lightweight (60 kg) rankings with just two matches to go for the weight class.
5-0 this season with all of his victories coming by unanimous decision, Selimov is three points ahead of nearest rival Lazaro Alvarez, and could qualify for Rio 2016 this weekend if other results go his way.
He faces a tough opponent in Guba when 3-0 Carlos Balderas takes to the ring in opposition.
This will be the first away match of the campaign for the American who is undefeated at home.
Fourth ranked Azeri Welterweight (69 kg) Parviz Baghirov lost to Kazakhstan’s Kanagat Maralov two weeks ago which all but ended his Olympic chances through WSB, and this week he fights sixth ranked American Brian Ceballo who has lost three of his last four matches.
A Light heavyweight (81 kg) tussle follows between seventh ranked 2-2 home star Soltan Migitinov and USA’s Steve Nelson.
Both Haji Murtuzaliyev and Cam F. Awesome lost a fortnight ago via TKO, so their Super heavyweight (91+ kg) shootout to close the evening could be an explosive affair.
Who will take flight when Argentina Condors face Caciques Venezuela?
A South American derby is one of the highlights in week 12 of the World Series of Boxing (WSB) as Argentina Condors host Caciques Venezuela.
Argentina won their first match of the season at home two weeks ago, while Venezuela are on a two match winning streak.
Ciudad De San Luis, San Luis is the venue for this Group B clash, where on Saturday 11th April fans across the world can watch the action free, live and on demand from 23:00 (GMT -3) at AIBABoxingTV.com.
The action begins at Flyweight (52 kg) where 1-3 Condor Cristian Alan Choque Chambi meets Venezuela’s Eduard Johan Bermúdez Salas who defeated USA’s Brent Venegas III two weeks ago.
Argentina’s Brian Ivan Nunez won his first match of the season in his last bout after four previously unsuccessful attempts, and the Lightweight (60 kg) will look to make it two in a row against Caciques debutant Luis Cabrera.
Gabriel Maestre Perez won a bronze medal for Venezuela at the 2013 AIBA World Championships, and has excelled in WSB this season.
Ranked number five in a competitive Welterweight (69 kg) division, the South American star is unlikely to qualify for Rio 2016 through WSB, but will want to move up the rankings after he faces Argentina’s 2-2 Alberto Ignacio Palmetta.
Palmetta won his opening two matches of Season V, but has lost his subsequent bouts which makes this Welterweight contest tough to call.
3-1 Venezuelan Light heavyweight (81 kg) Albert Ramon Ramirez Duran is fifth in the rankings, with his lone loss coming to WSB legend Hrvoje Sep via split decision.
This week he meets 0-1 Argentine Josue Oliva who has also lost to Sep this season.
The night ends at Super heavyweight (91+ kg) where home favourite Carlos Pedro Blanche battles Edgar Ramon Munoz Mata who stopped Cam F. Awesome two weeks ago.
Which undefeated record will go when Puerto Rico Hurricanes host Astana Arlans Kazakhstan?
Puerto Rico Hurricanes host Astana Arlans Kazakhstan in week 12 of the World series of Boxing (WSB) and the North American Franchise have won all five of their home matches this season.
Astana Arlans Kazakhstan have also been in superb form over the course of Season V, and have yet to lose a single fixture in the Regular Season.
One of the teams will lose their undefeated record, while for the individual boxers in action this is the penultimate match of the group stages for their weight classes which will also signify the cut-off for Rio 2016 Olympic Games qualification through WSB.
Coliseíto Pedrín Zorrilla, San Juan is the venue for this Group B clash, where on Saturday 11th April fans across the world can watch the action free, live and on demand from 19:00 (GMT -4) at AIBABoxingTV.com.
Flyweight (52 kg) Jeyvier Cintrón Ocasio was one of the youngest competitors in the London 2012 Olympic Games, and the 4-1 fighter is on the verge of reaching his second Olympics.
With two matches to go for the Flyweights, the Hurricane is second in the rankings, six points behind Cuba’s Yosbany Veitia, but crucially two points ahead of the next three boxers in the standings.
This week the home star meets Kazakhstan's sixth ranked Olzhas Sattibayev who would go above Cintrón Ocasio in the rankings if he defeats his opponent in San Juan.
Both boxers have been in excellent form this season, which makes this bout a highly intriguing and important one.
Fifth ranked Lightweight (60 kg) Jose Rosario is 4-0 in his debut WSB campaign, and the Puerto Rican star has won his last three matches by split decision.
The Hurricane is five points behind second ranked Cuban Lazaro Alvarez which means he will need to achieve a significant victory against 0-3 Zakir Safiullin to keep a glimmer of hope alive.
A Welterweight (69 kg) contest follows between 1-4 Nicklaus Flaz who has lost his last three matches, and current AIBA World Champion Daniyar Yeleussinov.
Croatia’s Hrvoje Sep is a tremendous member of the Astana Arlans Kazakhstan team, and sits third in the Light heavyweight (81 kg) rankings after winning all five of his matches this season.
Each of Sep’s matches have gone the distance, which is why he is two points behind the joint-top ranked Valentino Manfredonia and Julio César la Cruz.
Two Light heavyweight quotas for Rio are available, so Sep will be eager to claim the maximum points against 0-4 Joseph Laboy which will put pressure on his decorated rivals.
After the second ranked Super heavyweight (91+ kg) Joseph Joyce lost in London on Thursday night, top placed Croatian Filip Hrgovic now has his Olympic destiny in his own hands.
5-0 this season with four successive stoppages, the Astana Arlans Kazakhstan representative could go five points clear of Joyce with one match to play if he stops debutant Jose Gabriel Medina.
Italia Thunder seek third consecutive 5-0 home win against Rafako Hussars Poland
Italia Thunder welcome Rafako Hussars Poland to Andria in week 12 of the World Series of Boxing (WSB).
The Italian team have won their last two home matches 5-0, while Poland narrowly lost to Azerbaijan Baku Fires last week.
PalaSport Andria, Andria is the venue for this Group B clash, where on Saturday 11th April fans across the world can watch the action free, live and on demand from 21:00 (GMT +2) at AIBABoxingTV.com.
Amidst the competitive nature of both teams, 5-0 Italian Valentino Manfredonia is on a personal quest to qualify for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games through WSB, and the joint-top ranked Light heavyweight (81 kg) has his penultimate match of the Regular Season against Poland’s 1-3 Mateusz Jerzy Tryc.
Manfredonia has been one of the best boxers of Season V, and the Italian is level on 25 points with Cuba’s two-time AIBA World Champion Julio Cesar La Cruz in the Light heavyweight standings.
Both fighters are just two points ahead of Croatia’s Hrvoje Sep who also competes this weekend, so Manfredonia will hope for a second successive stoppage win against his Polish opponent to keep his Olympic destiny in his own hands.
Another boxer with Rio 2016 aspirations is Ireland’s Steven Donnelly who is currently third in the Welterweight (69 kg) rankings.
The Rafako Hussars Poland team member is 4-1 across this campaign, and is five points behind the second ranked Mohammed Rabii.
Such a points discrepancy means that Donnelly will need to stop Italy’s 0-1 Dario Morello to maintain his Olympic hopes.
The action in Andria begins at Flyweight (52 kg) where India’s 1-2 Gaurav Bidhuri meets Poland’s 0-1 Grzegorz Kozlowski, and is followed up by a Lightweight (60 kg) bout between Fabio Introvaia and Poland’s Mateusz Polski who replaces the injured Dawid Michelus.
A Super heavyweight (91+ kg) match closes proceedings where reigning Italian Champion Alessio Spahiu makes his first appearance of the season against 0-2 Roger Hryniuk.
