Great Britain took on the national squads of Kazakhstan, France and China this weekend in the Four Nations Challenge at the English Institute of Sport, Sheffield.
After a week of training and sparring together, the four countries spent two days competing in a two day tournament, with the semi finals on Saturday and finals on Sunday.
Standout bouts included: Welshman Andrew Selby’s finals win over Chinese boxer Jaiwei Zhang, who beat him earlier in the week; double world champion and Olympic gold medalist Shiming Zou’s dramatic win over Kazakhstan’s Zhakipov Birzhan, and Frank Buglioni’s supporting bout against Chevas Stephane of France, which raised the roof at the EIS on Sunday despite Frank’s loss in the semis to Tavares Nichel.
Keep an eye on the GB Boxing website www.gbboxing.org.uk photos and footage of all the bouts.
