The World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight semi final between WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk, 13-0 (11), and Mairis Briedis, 23-0 (18), has been announced for 27th January 2018 in Riga, Latvia. Ukranian Usyk is the tournament favourite and number one seed, and will be travelling to unbeaten Briedis's home town for their fight.
In the quarter final Usyk travelled to Germany to outclass and grind down Marco Kuck, finally stopping him in the tenth round. Briedis outpointed Mike Perez, who had dropped down from heavyweight for the tournament. It promises to be an exciting clash, and the WBSS so far has been a resounding success. ITV should broadcast in the United Kingdom.
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.
