The second semi final of the cruiserweight World Boxing Super Series has been confirmed for 3rd February 2018 in Sochi. IBF world champion Murat Gassiev, 25-0 (18), will take on Yunier Dorticos, 22-0 (21), who holds the WBA belt. The location means it is a home fight for 24 year old Murat Gassiev, and the winner would both unify the belts and move on to the final to compete for the Ali Trophy and the WBO belt, currently held by Oleksandr Usyk.
WBO boss Usyk meets Mairis Briedis who holds the WBC title in Latvia on 27th January in the other semi final, as we told you yesterday. Whoever comes out on top in the cruiserweight WBSS will hold all of the four main belts. tony Bellew is champion emeritus for the WBC however, and so should he return to cruiserweight will be allowed a shot at that title.
The super middleweight semi final between George Groves and Chris Eubank Jr, taking place in February next year sold out in only seven minutes. Boxing fans seem to have really taken to the series concept. The Sauerlands have said there will be two more concurrent tournaments beginning later this year, in new weight classes, which ones are yet to be announced but with the return of Tyson Fury imminent it would not be hard to guess what division most fans would want to see.
