BBC Sport - British boxing's Rob McCracken says WSB can aid Olympic hopes

GB boxers eye early ticket to Rio

Regular participation in the World Series of Boxing will benefit British boxers' future Olympic hopes, says GB performance director Rob McCracken.

With Rio 2016 places at stake, the British Lionhearts team has returned to the event after missing last season.

Over the course of the WSB season, 16 national franchises, split into two groups, will contest matches home and away, with the aim of progressing to the quarter-finals.
