Usyk v Gassiev: World Boxing Super Series UNDERCARD IS LOADED

Usyk v Gassiev 16/07/2018

This weekend’s massive cruiserweight battle not only has four world titles at stake but the first ever Muhammad Ali Trophy and a stacked undercard to lead into the main event. 

Alexsandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev both put their unified world championships on the line in a bid to see one sole champion rule the world at 200 pounds plus, although the rest of the card will no doubt keep fans on the edge of their seats until the headliner.

At the Olimpiyskiy in Moscow, Russia, just six days on from the World Cup Final being staged in the country, a huge boxing event will entertain the masses.

The co-feature sees none other than the current queen of women’s boxing, pound for pound number one Cecilia Braekhus putting her WBC, IBF, IBO, WBO, and WBA welterweight belts up for grabs versus Inna Sagaydakovskaya.

In the super middleweight division, Fedor Chudinov takes on Nadjib Mohammedi, whilst Andrey Sirotkin will battle Vladimir Shishkin in the same weight class.

A middleweight offering sees Magomed Madiev and Marcelo Caceres go one-on-one, whilst former world champion Denis Shafikov squares off against Jhon Gemino in a super-featherweight contest.

The vacant Russian super welterweight title will be contested when undefeated Konstantin Ponomarev takes on 6-0 Sergey Vorobiev, whilst WBSS cruiserweight semi-finalist Mairis Briedis will also participate in a ten-rounder against an opponent to be named.

Serhii Bohachuk v Nikolozi Gviniashvili and Shakhabas Makhmudov v Malkhaz Sujashvili round off the bill, both at super welterweight.
