UK Sport is offering you the opportunity to win tickets for the British Lionhearts next home fixture against the USA Knockouts at York Hall in London on Thursday 17 January.
Two Olympic silver medallists and three reigning European Champions will be competing as the British team aims to extend its unbeaten home record in the World Series of Boxing to three wins from three.
London 2012 silver medallists Fred Evans and John Joe Nevin will line-up alongside reigning European champions Andrew Selby and Joe Ward. They will be joined by Frazer Clarke who will make his debut in the competition at heavyweight.
The Lionhearts will box a USA team which features London 2012 bronze medallist, Michael Conlan from Ireland and Daouda Sow of France who won silver in Beijing.
It sets-up a mouth-watering contest at Bantamweight where Conlan will be seeking revenge on Andrew Selby after the Welshman defeated him 25-24 in a thrilling quarter-final contest at the 2011 AIBA World Championships in Baku, where Selby eventually went on to claim silver.
At lightweight it pits two Olympic silver medallists against each other as Ireland’s 2012 finalist John Joe Nevin takes-on Daouda Sow who won lightweight silver four years earlier in Beijing.
To be in with a chance of winning tickets, look out for the quiz question on UK Sport’s Twitter feed, @uk_sport, on Friday 11 January. The first five people to answer correctly will each win a pair of tickets.
Established in 2010, the World Series of Boxing is a national team boxing competition made-up of 12 teams from across the world. A WSB match between two international franchises consists of bouts in five weight categories: bantamweight (54kg), lightweight (61kg), middleweight (73kg), light-heavyweight (85kg) and heavyweight (91kg+).
Competitors box without vests and head guards and the WSB scoring system is based on the ‘ten point must system’. Each bout is decided by the scores of three judges or by a knockout, technical knockout, disqualification or walk over. There are five three-minute rounds in each bout and the team that wins the most number of bouts wins the match.
