Updated: January 31, 2011

Dublin boxer Kenny Egan lost on a split decision against Ukrainian light-heavyweight Vyacheslav Shabranskij as his Miami team suffered a 5-0 whitewash against Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Egan was aiming for his second WSB victory in the ring and his third win in the competition(one walkover)but Kiev-born Shabranskij won the five round bout on a 48-47,46-49,49-46 scoreline.

Egan’s Irish team-mate John Joe Joyce, gave a walkover to LA middleweight Russell Lamour after picking up the flu.

Los Angeles are now ten-points clear of third-placed Miami at the top of the table in the WSB Americas group. The winners in the Asian, Americas and European groups plus the best runner up qualify for the WSB Team Championships semi-finals.
