The Ukraine Otamans took advantage of the Dolce &Gabbana Italia Thunder’s slip up in the USA to increase their lead in Group A of the World Series of Boxing (WSB). Their opponents, the Algeria Desert Hawks however, remain pined to the bottom.

Even better for the Otamans, it was their young guns who took to the ring today to gain experience. 23 year old Super Heavyweight (91+kg)Igor Plevako took his WSB record to 2-0 with his TKO of 34 year old Algerian veteran Kamel Rahmani as did Flyweight (52kg) Kazat Usenaliev from Kyrgyzstan when he beat Amine Khentache. Finally, 22 year old Oleg Prudkyi had a successful debut against France’sOualid Belaoura.

There was some good news too for Ievgenii Barabanov who at 20 got his first WSB win over Fehim Chabane and now has an improved record of 1-2.

It wasn’t all one way traffic though, and Desert Hawks veteran Nabil Kassel won by split decision over the 18 year old Light Heavyweight (81kg) Oleksandr Khyzhniak to take his personal record to a respectable 4-2.

Coming up next, the Otamans take the long journey to Miami where they will face an invigorated USA Knockouts team. Algeria meanwhile will be hosting second placed Team Germany.
