Azerbaijan Baku Fires have been one of the most successful and entertaining Franchises across the history of the World Series of Boxing (WSB), and they reached the Finals of Season V last year where they narrowly lost to Cuba Domadores by just one leg.

In the current and fifth season of WSB, the Baku Fires had a quiet start, losing three of their first five fixtures, but they found their form superbly in the latter stages ending with four consecutive victories and finishing second in the Group B table.

Their efforts at home have been exceptional, with just one tight defeat against Astana Arlans Kazakhstan against six dominant victories, and they have dropped only five legs in seven matches in Guba.

The Franchise has consistently maintained an excellent squad, and their strength in depth has been perfectly encapsulated this season with many strong performances from their boxers.

6-0 Albert Selimov finished second in the Lightweight (60 kg) rankings, and earned a Rio 2016 Olympic Games quota after dominating all of his opponents, while WSB veteran Gaybatulla Gadzhialiyev placed third at Light welterweight (64 kg) with five impressive wins.

While Selimov and Gadzhialiyev excelled in their weight classes as they were predicted to do, the Baku Fires has also produced supreme talents from other divisions, including 5-1 Welterweight (69 kg) Parviz Baghirov who has looked unbeatable in home matches, and 5-1 Bantamweight (56 kg) Magomed Gurbanov.

One boxer the team will be keenly hoping can help them move into the semi-finals will be 3-1 Flyweight (52 kg) Murad Rabadanov, who is a boxer with excellent reflexes and tremendous speed.

The Baku Fires possess fearsome strength, and a huge will to win, both of which are key attributes for potential WSB Champions.

After the disappointment of losing in final last season, they will be eager to go one step further in this campaign and finally become Champions at the fifth time of asking.
