The Argentina Condors was one of the biggest success stories of Season III, as they made it to the playoffs in their debut season. The South American outfit struggled to replicate their shape in Season IV, as they finished fifth in Group A, with three wins and seven losses from ten matches.
Despite high expectations, the Franchise could not find any consistency over the course of the Regular Season, which stemmed from an opening home defeat to Italia Thunder. Heavy defeats became a sad reality for Argentina, although they did push USA Knockouts all the way to the wire in week two with a narrow loss 3-2 in Florida.
Perhaps the most frustrating fact for fans of the Condors was that when the team was in shape, they looked absolutely spectacular. A memorable 4-1 thrashing of Algeria Desert Hawks just before Christmas still lives long in the memory, while they also defeated group leaders Ukraine Otamans 3-2 in Buenos Aires towards the latter stages of the Regular Season.
The potential for the future of the Argentinian team was showcased in their last match of Season IV, as they defeated Team Germany 3-2 at home. Next season will be a key one for the Condors, and their home shape will be crucial to any possible future success.
Standing in their way of progression to the playoffs in Season V are the rugged Hussars Poland, reigning Champions Cuba Domadores, former champions Italia Thunder and Astana Arlans Kazakhstan as well as stalwarts Azerbaijan Baku fires in Group B.
While The Argentina Condors boast a tough and close team, two of their stars shone brightest last season. The Bantamweight, Alberto Melian won all five of his Season IV contests, and showcased himself as one of the greatest talents in the entire competition.
Heavyweight Yamil Peralta never lost in his eight WSB fights, and his efforts against Germany’s Johann Witt in the last week of action resulted for him in one of the most dominant performances of the season. As of this season, Peralta has signed to AIBA Pro Boxing (APB) meaning the Argentinian team will lose his services in Season V.
