Shiva Thapa loses to Edgar Walth as Team Germany hammer USA Knockouts in Frankfurt Team Germany vs USA Knockouts

All three judges gave the first three rounds to Walth 10:9. Shiva edged the fourth round on the second judge's scorecard but the other two still marked the fourth to Walth. With the bout all but lost, barring a knockout, Shiva Thapa managed to win the fifth round by a split decision. However, it proved too little too late and Walth took the points by a convincing 49:46 margin on all three scorecards.

It was scant consolation that Shiva Thapa was the more respectable of scoreline for the USA Knockouts team on a forgettable night in Frankfurt. Team Germany won the match 5-0.

Norberto Torres lost the Light Flyweight bout to Serge Neumann and Carlos Adames was barely in the contest against Artem Harutyunyan in Light Welterweight class. Anthony Campbell was outclassed by Josef Attanjaoui in middleweight division and Artue Mann took out Earl Anthony Newman at Heavyweight.

The World Series of Boxing(WSB) is a professional boxing competition organised by AIBA that allows the professional boxers to maintain Olympic eligibility.
