#WSBV – Day 2 The fairytale continues as Puerto Rico Hurricanes remain undefeated against Argentina Condors25 January 2015
Although the pedigree of Puerto Rican boxing is highly distinguished, few boxing insiders were tipping the Puerto Rico Hurricanes much success in their debut World Series of Boxing season, but the new Franchise remain undefeated after an away win against Argentina Condors.
Their 3-2 victory in Buenos Aires comes after another win of the same scoreline against Rafako Hussars Poland, while Argentina Condors are still yet to taste victory in Group B.
Flyweight (52 kg) Jeyvier Cintrón Ocasio is one of Puerto Rico’s most promising boxing talents, and he won his WSB debut on all three scorecards against Argentina’s Cristian Alan Choque Chambi.
The Hurricanes roared in match number two, where Lightweight (60 kg) Jose Rosario won an even wider points victory over Brian Ivan Nunez.
Argentine Welterweight (69 kg) Alberto Ignacio Palmetta has been one of the most successful boxers in recent years from the South American nation, and he clawed back a win for his Franchise against Nicklaus Flaz.
The Condors made it 2-2 on the night at Light heavyweight (81 kg) when Marcos Escudero won by unanimous decision over Joseph Laboy.
With everything to play for in the final Super heavyweight (91+ kg), the Hurricanes powerful Cosme Henrique dos Santos Nascimento secured the win for his team as he stopped Facundo Cesar Ghiglione in round three of their fight.
Puerto Rico Hurricanes look to maintain their undefeated record in week three away to Italia Thunder, while Argentina Condors will try and regroup away to Rafako Hussars Poland.
