WSB sets both legs of Russia vs. Ukraine quarter-final on respective home soils
Lausanne, Switzerland, March 19, 2014 – The International Boxing Association (AIBA) and the World Series of Boxing (WSB) have announced today that both legs of the WSB quarter-final match between the Russian Boxing Team and the Ukraine Otamans will be maintained on a home and away basis.
The first leg will be held on March 30 in Moscow (Russia), and the second leg on April 4 in Donetsk (Ukraine).
This decision has been made based on the main principle of the Olympic Movement, which is that sport should always be dealt with outside of politics. Both teams have fully agreed on this principle and AIBA/WSB is extremely happy that the opinion of both teams has been respected.
The winner of this quarter-final will then face the winner of the USA Knockouts vs. Cuba Domadores match. First leg to be held on April 25 in either Russia or Ukraine, and second leg on May 2 in either the USA or Cuba.
