Both Rafako Hussars Poland and Italia Thunder have only won a solitary match out of four so far in Season V of the World Series of Boxing (WSB), which makes this a key match for either Franchise to escape from the mid-table of Group B.
However, the last time the Polish team competed in these five weight classes they won 5-0 against Argentina Condors, while Italia Thunder also have confidence in these categories after they also whitewashed Puerto Rico Hurricanes two weeks ago.
Therefore, both teams will be full of confidence despite relatively poor starts to the season, and plenty of exciting boxing is expected.
Up first are the Light flyweights (49 kg) and Poland’s Dawid Sebastian Jagodzinski is looking for his second win a row against the 2-0 Irish star and two-time Olympic bronze medalist Patrick Barnes who has looked excellent this season.
Sylwester Kozlowski picked up a walkover victory in his last Bantamweight (56 kg) match, and will look forward to getting into the ring with Ireland’s 1-1 Michael Conlan who stopped Garibaldy Gomez in his last WSB appearance.
At Light welterweight (64 kg) the 1-1 Damian Kiwior competes against the Italian with an identical record, Vincenzo Mangiacapre.
Polish Middleweight (75 kg) Tomasz Jablonski has impressed for Poland in Season V having won his opening two matches, and he puts his undefeated record on the line when he fights Italy’s 1-1 Salvatore Cavallaro.
In the last match, Polish Heavyweight (91 kg) Igor Pawel Jakubowski is hunting for his third stoppage win of the season against Endri Spahiu who won his lone match of the campaign via walkover.
