WSB: Mexico 3-2 Azerbaijan: Guerreros fight fire with fire

This weekend represented an enormous opportunity for the Azerbaijan Baku Fires. Had they won in Mexico City, then they would have pulled level with the Russian Boxing Team in the table of Group B. Season III semi-finalists, the Mexico Guerreros, were not interested in rolling over easily on home turf however, and they rediscovered the form that made them one of the World Series of Boxing (WSB)’s most formidable teams last year.

In a magnificent display of class, the Cuba Domadores again underlined why they are title favourites for many pundits this year.
