I like that what the World Series of Boxing is trying to do. Taking amatuer fighters and giving them a transition into what it’s like in the pro’s.(While maintaining their amatuer status if I’m not correct.) It also gets fighters experience traveling. The only thing I’m not really a fan of is that it’s team based. I think it’s a great idea, but boxing isn’t about teams. It’s just you in there. I thought that’s where the television show The Contender went wrong as well. Focusing to much on team based events when in boxing it’s just you and your trainer, etc. I think for the World Series kids building the team spirit can work if they were all potential Olympic Team candidates, but that’s what USA Boxing is for. I hate to criticize because boxing can use all the help it can get and I love watching the World Series of Boxing or ANY Boxing for that matter. I just feel to really get them ready for the professional level it shouldn’t be team based. I think it’d be cooler if each weight class was working towards a trophy or belt like in the Golden Gloves.
