Sean McGoldrick insists he has no intention of letting his unbeaten World Series of Boxing record slide as the British Lionhearts prepare for their penultimate regular season fixture at the German Eagles.
The 21-year-old, who won Commonwealth silver in 2010 before seeing it upgraded to gold after his conqueror Manju Wanniarachchi failed a drugs test, has won all three of his fights in Britain’s first season in WSB.
All three of those have come on the road with Britain, who qualified for the play-off stages with victory over Kazakhstan last time out, set for their last away trip with Germany next up on Saturday.
McGoldrick joins Joe Cordina, Kaupo Arro, Uaine Fa and debutant Lawrence Osueke in Hannover where he will fight Olympic bronze medallist from Beijing 2008 Veaceslav Gojan in the bantamweight contest.
Britain have also announced their team for their final regular season fixture against Ukraine with Olympic silver medallist Fred Evans, Andrew Selby, Joe Ward, Sam Maxwell and Joe Joyce confirmed for next week’s match.
Ukraine will field Olympic champions Oleksandr Usyk and Vasyl Lomachenko and McGoldrick, the third best bantamweight in WSB this season, will settle for nothing less than another win before then in Germany.
“It will be a tough contest in Germany but I am really enjoying the World Series of Boxing and hope to end the regular season on-a-high and with an unbeaten record,” said McGoldrick.
“The team has really done well to qualify for the play-off stages in our first season in the competition and hopefully we can finish with a couple of good performances and get a good draw for the quarter finals.”
