Mexico Guerreros make it five wins in a row following success in Algeria

The mercurial Mexico Guerreros accomplished their fifth successive World Series of Boxing (WSB) victory with a 3-2 away win against Algeria Desert Hawks.

This victory keeps the momentum going for the Mexican Franchise who are pushing third placed Ukraine Otamans all the way in Group A, while Algeria will take confidence from almost matching the North American team in Blida.

Mexican Flyweight (52 kg) Orlando Huitzil Ahuatl opened the scoring for his team after winning a tight bout against Algeria’s 0-3 Abdelhakim El Barka.

Lindolfo Delgado began the evening with a 3-0 record and ranked fourth in the Lightweight (60 kg) rankings, but lost his first match of the season to Algeria’s 4-1 Reda Benbaziz who won every round of the fight, and could take Delgado’s place in the WSB rankings after this win.

The Guerreros resumed the lead when Welterweight (69 kg) Marvin Cabrera won his second consecutive match as he outpointed Sofiane Tabi.

Light heavyweight (81 kg) Rogelio Romero earned his second win of Season V, and the overall victory for Mexico after defeating Algerian WSB veteran Hichem Kaalaour in an incredibly close match.

Another narrow bout occurred at Super heavyweight (91+ kg) when Desert Hawk Mohamed Grimes secured a split decision verdict over Irish debutant Dean Gardiner.

Mexico Guerreros host Russian Boxing Team next week, while Algeria Desert Hawks welcome British Lionhearts.
