The participation of the Chinese WSB team was a great experience for their boxers as they are trying to build up a new team. Some of their new talents such as Hu Jianguan and Liu Wei shined in the Season V at the WSB.
Uzbekistan Team is a new Asian franchise in the World Series of Boxing but known the strength of the Central Asian boxing country they can shine in the Group Stage in spite of the fact they will have strong opponents.
