THE British Lionhearts return to York Hall on Thursday, March 19 in desperate need of win against the Morocco Atlas Lions. The GB franchise are 2-7 in their team matches so far in the World Series of Boxing.

Boxing on Thursday are some young prospects to look out for. London light-heavyweight Joshua Buatsi makes his WSB debut in a tough bout against Peter Mullenberg. The Dutchman is one of the top 81kgs boxers in Europe (see this week’s issue of Boxing News for our rankings). But Buatsi, who won the Elite national championships last year, has a style that could be effective in the WSB format.

Birtley’s Luke McCormack is a quality lightweight who is a new addition to the international scene. He makes a first appearance against Morocco’s Abdellah Boudrar.
