After a narrow defeat to Italia Thunder in their 2017 World Series of Boxing opener, the British Lionhearts aim to bounce back against France Fighting Roosters.

In Rome on February 9th the Lionhearts were beaten 3-2. Galal Yafai was victorious over Light-Flyweight Federico Serra, and Dalton Smith overcame Paolo di Lernia at Light-Welterweight. However, points losses for Jack Bateson, Josip-Bepo Filipi and Luka Plantic sealed the tie for Italy.

The squad to travel to Paris includes Super-Heavyweight Frazer Clarke and Olympian Muhammad Ali, plus Luke McCormack and Cyrus Pattinson.

France impressed in their 4-1 triumph over Morocco Atlas Lions, so the Lionhearts will have to be at the top of their game to earn a victory at the Salle Wagram in Paris.
