Slick Mexico team to battle Russia

PhilBoxing.com


Lausanne, Switzerland, 08 January 2013 - In order to deal with the threat posed by the visiting Russian team in their Group A encounter this Friday 11 January (21:00 local time), Mexico Guerreros have ensured their most talented boxers will be taking to the ring ready to battle. 2012 World Series of Boxing (WSB) Individual Championships finalist pair Elias Emigdio and Juan Romero have both been named in the squad along with undefeated duo Marvin Cabrera and Isaac Munoz so it promises to be a big night at fortress Foro Polanco.

Explosive 21-year-old orthodox Mexican Bantamweight (50-54kg) Emigdio, who extended his WSB record to 10-2 with another classy win in week three, will be pitted against Mukhammad Shekhov in the first bout of the evening. The Russian southpaw will surely be unable to cope with the speed, agility and constant barrage of punches that Emigdio likes to subject his opponents to.



Reigning WSB Lightweight (57-61kg) Champion Romero just seems to get better and better with the 22-year-old once again demonstrating his killer instinct in his last outing with a dominant display against London Olympian Ahmed Mejri of Algeria. The Mexican star will battle untested Konstantin Bogomazov and his experience should stand him in good stead for this one.

At Middleweight (68-73kg), the mouth-watering showdown between Cabrera and tough Russian Aleksandr Ivanov is really one to look forward to. The Mexican teenage southpaw has impressed in his two wins this season and his height could make the difference on the night. Ivanov will be hurting from his defeat to Poland's Tomasz Jablonski last time out so will be eager to get back to winning ways.

Ivanov told WSB, "All I want is to put on a good performance for my team. There is a great spirit in the group and we cannot wait to test ourselves against Mexico". On his opponent he declared, "I do not know much about him apart from what I have seen on the internet. I am feeling great both physically and mentally so I will stick to my game plan and hopefully it should bring me a win".

Munoz Gutierrez will then lock horns with the impressive 29-year-old orthodox fighter Danil Shved in the Light Heavyweight (80-85kg) bout. The young Mexican prodigy has been top class in his first season in WSB but he faces his toughest test to date when he locks horns with the savvy Shved.

To bring the night's show to a close, it will be the height of Mexico's 26-year-old Venezuelan Jose Payares versus the power of Maxim Babanin in the Heavyweight (91+kg) contest. The home boxing southpaw underwhelmed in his last outing and will be keen to put things right against an opponent who has only fought once in WSB.

With the Guerreros notoriously hard to beat at home, Russia will have to be on top of their game to claim victory from this match. It will be tight but the odds favour Mexico in this one.
