(NOV 30) (COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO.) – USA Boxing’s European Tour squad has traveled to Ukraine for the second leg of their international competition overseas. The mixed squad of elite male and female athletes competed in the World Cup of Petroleum Countries in Surgut, Russia, November 24-27 before heading to the next stop on their journey.

The United States and Ukraine will face off in two dual competitions with Team USA facing two different squads from the host nation. The first competition will take place tomorrow in Chernivtsi, Ukraine following two days of joint training sessions. Team USA will travel to Ivano-Frankisvsk on December 2 prior to the second dual match, which will take place on Sunday.

The U.S. squad competing in Ukraine will be: male flyweight Shawn Simpson (Chicago, Ill.), female flyweight Marlen Esparza (Houston, Texas), male lightweight Toka Kahn Clary (Providence, R.I.), female light N’yteeyah Sherman (Barberton, Ohio), male light welterweight George Rincon (Carrollton, Texas), male welterweight Errol Spence (Desoto, Texas), male middleweight Antoine Douglas (Burke, Va.), female middleweight Tika Hemingway (Pittsburgh, Pa.), male heavyweight Jordan Shimmell (Hudsonville, Mich.), and male super heavyweight Laron Mitchell (San Francisco, Calif.).

Coaches Ken Porter (Akron, Ohio), Ed Rivas (Abilene, Texas) and Everette Elliston (Denver Colo.) will once again guide the U.S. squad at the USA vs. Ukraine Dual with Bruce Kawano (Pearl City, Hawaii) serving as the Technical Advisor, and Ken Buffington (Marshalltown, Iowa) joining the delegation as Team Manager. The team will return to the United States on Monday following the two dual competitions.

Ukraine’s men’s team was the top finisher at the 2011 AIBA World Championships, qualifying six athletes for the 2012 Olympic Games at the event. The full bout sheets for the dual events can be found below.
