THE BRITISH Lionhearts return to the World Series of Boxing this Thursday  (January 15). Liverpool’s Sam Maxwell, now a WSB veteran, has had a tortuous experience in the new format, boxing at altitude in Mexico as well as having to endure two five-round contests with Ukrainian great Vasyl Lomachenko.

“I’m one of the most experienced now. I’ve had five [WSB bouts]. Three home ones, two away, I’ve been all around the world as well. I’ve got to take that experience into this year,” Sam told Boxing News.

“I boxed terrible in Mexico. Even when we’d go for a walk in the morning I was out of breath. It was mad. I think psychologically, because we knew it was at altitude. It made you feel even more tired, psychologically. Physically it was hard out there. But it was experience. They’re in our group again this year. I’ll have to go over there again. Do better this time!”
