World Series of Boxing Comes to the Eldorado

Team USA Takes on Germany February 9 and Italy March 1

The World Series of Boxing (WSB) is coming back to the Biggest Little City. The USA Knockouts will take on the German Eagles inside the Eldorado Convention Center on Saturday, February 9 at 6 p.m. and they’ll go toe-to-toe with the Dolce & Gabbana Italia Thunder Boxing Team on March 1 at 7 p.m.

WSB is the first truly global professional boxing league that brings together the best boxers in international Franchise teams to compete in five weight categories: bantam, light, middle, light heavy and heavy.

The USA Knockouts are the new American Franchise lead by four-time Olympic Coach Basheer Abdullah. The team boasts an international mix of top talents and experienced campaigners with a roster comprised of both professionals and boxers from the amateur ranks.

The German team is backed by the German Boxing Federation and a savvy coaching staff, including head coach Valentin Silaghi.

Fully endorsed by the Italian Boxing Federation and being sponsored by the Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, the Italian team has been synonymous with glamour and has attracted a huge fan base, not only in Italy, but all around the world. They are only a few points behind the leader in the current rankings.

Developed by AIBA, the International Boxing Association, WSB is a unique concept in the world of boxing as the only pro-style team competition where boxers retain their Olympic eligibility. It brings together the best Olympic boxers representing their country in an explosive format with worldwide appeal. Endorsed by nearly 200 National Federations, WSB represents the future of boxing, promotes a transparent scoring system and brings with it a much needed world-leading governance and commercial guidance to international boxing.
