«The second joint tournament from B1 Boxing and WBC Boxing Jungle was held at a high level. All the guys showed what was expected of them – the thirst for victory, which is one of the main things in such a sport as boxing.
WBC and WBC Ukraine support such professional boxing tournaments to take them to the next level. Thanks to the cooperation with the World Boxing Council and, in particular, the broadcast of the show on the WBC platforms, each boxer gets a chance to make himself known to the world. The more such chances there are, the more fighters will appear in Ukraine, and the better our favorite sport will develop».
B1 Boxing CEO Alon Noiman reviewed the second Boxing Jungle tournament:
«I am satisfied with every fight in the Boxing Jungle-2 tournament. The fighters entered the ring and demonstrated their maximum. It was great! I expect our next tournaments in partnership with the WBC to be just as interesting.
Together, B1 Boxing and the WBC have a challenging mission to find the best of the best in the next generation of fighters. And when we do, we will give them a chance to reach their goal. That goal should be to become a world champion in boxing. The fighters must show that they are true predators, who are ready to fight for their territory!»
At the end of the boxing evening, the show’s partner, crowdfunding company Stellar Investment, presented two special awards: Best knockout – Yaroslav Mykhalushko, Best fight – Bohdan Shtonda.
It should be noted that Boxing Jungle-2 fights could be watched live not only by XSPORT+ TV channel viewers in Ukraine, but also by anyone anywhere in the world thanks to the broadcast on WBC online platforms.
