#WSBV – Day 2 Mexico Guerreros win at home to leave Morocco Atlas Lions still without a WSB victory25 January 2015
After defeat for both Mexico Guerreros and Morocco Atlas Lions in their opening Group A matches, their match in Aguascalientes was a crucial one, and the home Guerreros ultimately proved victorious, winning the night 4-1 to leave Morocco still without a win this season in the World Series of Boxing (WSB).
Flyweight Alam Yael de la Luz Galindo started the night off successfully against Morocco’s Achraf Kharroubi, winning on two scorecards, while the third judge had the fight even.
A dominant last round from the Mexican fighter established the victory, and he showed many skills throughout the contest.
Mexico’s Lightweight (60 kg) Lindolfo Delgado then made it 2-0 for his Franchise with a unanimous points win over Moroccan Abdellah Boudrar who won October’s Mohamed VI Trophy.
The Atlas Lions earned their lone win of the evening in fight three, as Mohammed Rabii caused a major upset against Mexico’s Marvin Cabrera who was the WSB Season III number one ranked Welterweight (69 kg).
Rabii had a lot of pressure going into the fight, and after winning in Mexico against one of the best fighters in the weight class, he is one to watch this season.
Ecuador’s Carlos Mina is competing at Light heavyweight (81 kg) for Mexico Guerreros this season, and he confirmed their opening win of the season by defeating Mohamed Assaguir on points.
Mexico’s young Super heavyweight (91+ kg) Edgar Ramirez has amazing potential, and he displayed huge amounts of skill in the last fight of the evening, as he won every round against Morocco’s Thierry Adolphe Ngueharoum.
The Guerreros are at home again in week three against Algeria Desert Hawks, while Morocco Atlas Lions look for their first win against British Lionhearts.
