Uzbek Tigers secured their second 4-1 World Series of Boxing victory in three days to start the fifth week of the season.

Having beaten the Cuba Domadores on Tuesday (February 27), the Tigers were hoping to replicate their performance in the Universal Sport Complex in Tashkent against the Colombia Heroicos.

Their hopes were dented early on, as Khudoynazar Fayzov suffered defeat in his 52 kilogram flyweight bout against the Heroicos' Ceiber Avila.

Two judges gave Avila the verdict by a 48-46 score, while the third official scored the contest evenly at 47-47.

Fayzov would have been left rueing points being deducted from his scores due to warnings, which were likely to have contributed to his defeat.

The Tigers quickly levelled the match, with Shunkor Abdurasulov winning his 60kg lightweight bout due to a fourth-round abandonment against Duvan Zuleta.

There was a case of déjà vu when the 69kg welterweight bout was abandoned in the same round.

The Tigers’ Makhmud Gaipov was the beneficiary on this occasion, with Alexander Rangel suffereing defeat.

Victory was sealed by the Tigers in the next bout, as Bektemir Melikuziev proved too good for Diego Alejandro Motoa Carabali in the 81kg light heavyweight event.

Melikuziev was awarded a unanimous points victory, with all three judges scoring the contest 49-46 in his favour.

Bakhodir Jalolov then rounded off an excellent performance from the hosts by winning his 91kg super heavyweight bout.

He was awarded a 50-44 victory by each of the judges against Cristian Salcedo.

The result sees the Tigers move level with the Domadores at the top of Group A, with two wins and one defeat from their matches to date.

Tomorrow will see the France Fighting Roosters face the Croatian Knights in Zadar, as they seek to maintain their 100 per cent start.

Both the British Lionhearts and Italia Thunder have overcome the Knights, but have suffered defeat to the Fighting Roosters.

They are now set to go head-to-head in their first meeting of the season at The Auditorium at Echo Arena in Liverpool.

The Russian based Patriot Boxing Team will go in search of their first victory of the season tomorrow.

Indian Tigers are set to provide the opposition in Kazan, with both squads looking to bounce back from opening match losses to the defending champions Astana Arlans Kazakhstan in Group C.
