Tickets are on sale now for the British Lionhearts vital next home fixture in the World Series of Boxing against Astana Arlans Kazakhstan at the iconic York Hall in Bethnal Green on Thursday 7 February 2013.
Final teams are yet to be confirmed, but Olympic medal winning boxers and Olympians will be in action.
The British team will be looking for revenge after it was defeated by the Arlans when the teams met in the away fixture in Kazakhstan in December 2012.
A victory for either team will guarantee qualification into the knockout stages of the World Series of Boxing and an opportunity to compete for the £1 million first prize.
Tickets are priced £20 for general admission and £80 ringside. Two-for-one promotions are available (use codes WSB24120 and WSB24180 for the £20 and £80 tickets respectively). Tickets for this fixture and the Lionhearts final home match of the season against the Ukraine Otaman on Friday 1 March 2013 can be purchased at www.britishlionhearts.com/tickets or from York Hall on the night.
Established in 2010, the World Series of Boxing is a national team boxing competition made-up of 12 teams from across the world. A WSB match between two international franchises consists of bouts in five weight categories: bantamweight (54kg), lightweight (61kg), middleweight (73kg), light-heavyweight (85kg) and heavyweight (91kg+).
Competitors box without vests and head guards and the WSB scoring system is based on the 'ten point must system'. Each bout is decided by the scores of three judges or by a knockout, technical knockout, disqualification or walk over. There are five three-minute rounds in each bout and the team that wins the most number of bouts wins the match.
