One of the big success stories to come out of Season III and led by Light Heavyweight revelation Yamil Peralta’s superb 6-0 record, Argentina Condors reached the playoffs in their debut season before narrowly losing out to Astana Arlans Kazakhstan over two legs. The South Americans then struggled to replicate that form in Seasons IV and V, unable to find any consistency and struggling to progress from the group stages. Two solid early home wins against Venezuela Caciques and Rafako Hussars Poland wasn’t enough to steer the Condors through an equally tough Season VI Group, and the team enters Season VII looking to build on their experiences and start to recall their early WSB success.
Historically, Argentina is one of South America’s boxing powerhouses, and it is the country’s second most-watched sport behind only football. That popularity has ensured a regular crop of young talent coming through gyms and grassroots programmes all across Argentina, and it has been a policy of the Condors’ management to utilise its younger boxers as much as possible to give them precious experience and maintain the team’s hunger for success.
