World Series of Boxing – Midweek Preview

Updated: February 1, 2012

Wednesday evening ( 1 Feb) will mark a historic moment in the story of the World Series of Boxing, with reigning champions Paris United hosting Beijing Dragons in one of the most iconic venues of the French capital, the Salle Wagram. Situated just metres away from the Arc de Triomphe in the heart of Paris, the Salle Wagram is an arena steeped in history and will host this very important Group B showdown between two teams in vital need of points in the race for the quarter-finals.

Taking to the ring for the Paris outfit will be the exciting 23-year-old southpaw Franck Petitjean who will lead the charges in the Lightweight contest with two other Frenchman also in the line-up for the home team. Young Moldovan star Aleksandr Riscan will take on the Bantamweight challenge with Cameroon’s Joseph Mulema looking to impose himself in his WSB debut. Look out for Beijing Dragons’ 22-year-old Orthodox fighter Dongxu Shang who will look to cause an upset when he faces Mulema.
