Since their first campaign back in Season IV, the British Lionhearts have embodied the kind of pride, passion and honour that is synonymous with the sport of boxing. Third-place in their group behind defending champions Italia Thunder and eventual winners Astana Arlans was enough to reach the Play-Offs, where the team was narrowly eliminated by a resurgent Mexico Guerreros. A disappointing Season V saw the team win just 23 out of their 70 bouts, but the young side gained valuable experience and came out firing in Season VI, topping their group before securing passage to the Final with impressive wins over Ukraine Otamans and Astana Arlans. Only a superb Cuba Domadores performance halted the charge, and the Lionhearts return in Season VII with confidence high.
The British Lionhearts’ identical twins Pat and Luke McCormack have risen shoulder-to-shoulder through the ranks of British boxing. Luke is a powerful Lightweight (60kg) with a 4-1 record in WSB, while his brother Pat competes at Light Welterweight (64kg) and boasts an unbeaten 3-0 record from Season VI.
