Hazel Ekow Tabiri-Essuman was a part of the British Lionhearts’ squad drawn in the same preliminary-stage group as the Cuba Domadores in Season V, going down 9-1 across the home and away matches last year. A second-round win over Ukrainian Bohdan Shelestyuk during that campaign provided Essuman’s first WSB win, while his opening match of Season VI pitted the welterweight against Moroccan number one Mohammed Rabii, providing crucial experience, if not success, at the top level. The final in Tashkent will be the biggest bout of the 27 year-old’s career since his gold at the Golden Gong tournament back in 2014.
