The British Lionhearts suffered a 4-1 defeat against an experienced Ukraine team in their latest World Series of Boxing contest.

A young Lionhearts team were unable to match a Ukraine outfit featuring Olympic champions Oleksandr Usyk and Vasyl Lomachenko in Kiev.

Wales' Commonwealth Games gold medal-winning bantamweight Sean McGoldrick won the first bout of the evening.

But Sam Maxwell, Aston Brown, Babacar Kamara and Uaine Fa all lost.

However the Lionhearts remain ahead of Ukraine in Group B of the World Series of Boxing, following wins against USA Knockouts, Italia Thunder and the German Eagles.
