If you have a spare moment to read anything else boxing related that isn’t about the Mayweather/ McGregor circus: then make it about the World Boxing Super Series!
Starting next month, eight top boxers will battle it out in a revolutionary bracket-style elimination tournament with four quarter finals (September & October 2017), two semi-finals (January and February 2018) and one final in May next year.
The winner will take away the coveted ‘Muhammad Ali Trophy’ as well as a share of the $50 million prize pool, depending on how successful they are in the tournament. The competition will give the participants exposure all around the world, raising their profile and perhaps gaining them some new fans that they would not otherwise acquire.
"The World Boxing Super Series will create the next superstars in world boxing," promoter Kalle Sauerland told UK Business Insider.
To be eligible, the fighters had to be rated in the Top 15 in any (or multiple) of the four major world rankings (WBA, WBO, WBC, IBF) . They will now battle it out over the course of nine months to take home the trophy and the lion’s share of the prize money.
In the Super Middleweight category, we will see a number of exciting boxers including our very own ‘Saint’ George Groves, Callum Smith and Eubank Jr., as well as unbeaten Matchroom contender Jamie Cox.
In Monte Carlo last month, the top four seeds carefully selected their opponents from the unseeded fighters and now we take a closer look at the pairings.
Callum Smith vs Erik Skoglund
September 16th - Echo Arena, Liverpool, UK
The first fight in the Super Middleweight category will be Callum Smith v Erik Skoglund in Liverpool on September 16. Smith, the number one contender for the WBC, selected Sweden’s Skoglund who is coming down from Light Heavyweight to participate in the competition.
26-year-old Skoglund is currently undefeated with 26-0, 12 KOs. He is an orthodox fighter who is 6ft 1, with most of his recent fights taking place in his hometown of Sweden as well as Germany, Finland and Denmark.
“To kick off the quarterfinals against an undefeated top guy is massive. I couldn't be happier with the choice," said Skoglund at the press conference in Monte Carlo.
“The preparations are going very well,” he also told the Swedish Press at an Open Gym workout.
“I am in the shape of my life and I need to be because Callum Smith is the toughest opponent I could ask for.”
Skoglund has also been sparring with four-time Super Middleweight World Champion Mikkel Kessler to help him in his training. “I am full of confidence ahead of fighting Callum Smith. I don’t feel any pressure. The pressure is on Callum, everyone expects him to shine in Liverpool, but I’m happy to be the underdog. I’m relaxed and ready to steal the shine and create the surprise,” he said.
Callum Smith gave up his position as mandatory world title challenger to enter the series. He is also undefeated with 22-0 (17 KO's) and as well as having the higher KO percentage, is also the taller man at 6ft 3. He also has the advantage of fighting in his hometown to kick off the contest.
“This is my home, and this is where all my best performances as a professional have been. I like fighting in Liverpool, and with the crowd behind me, I will have an added advantage on Sept. 16,” said Smith.
“There are no easy fights in this tournament. It's the best fighting the best, but I believe I made the right decision in Monte Carlo. That's not to say Skoglund is not a good fighter. I think he is a very good fighter. His record speaks for itself, but I think stylistically, he was the right choice for me. It will be a tough test. On paper, Skoglund is probably the best fighter I've ever faced, and I will need to be at my best to beat him. But every time I've been up against it in my career and every time there's been that fear factor, it's brought out the best in me.”
Smith decided to enter the contest, fed up of waiting around for mandatory fights to be made. He continued: “It won't still be up in the air whether there's going to be a changed location. I took too long waiting around and I had to make a decision.”
He is already looking ahead in the competition, relishing the prospect of a potential all-British battle with WBA ‘Super’ World Super Middleweight Champion George Groves.
“That's a huge fight,” Smith said. “It's common sense, we're both from Britain. He's a world champion and I want to be a world champion. That's a fight that without the tournament I have always wanted and felt would happen, but this tournament gives us a chance to make it happen sooner rather than later.
“As long as I win my first two fights, and he wins his then I'm sure it will make for a massive fight, a huge fight back home.” He finished.
Chris Eubank Jr. vs Avni Yildirim
October 7th - Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle, Stuttgart, Germany
Chris Eubank Snr selected Turkey’s Avni Yildirim to face his son in the World Boxing Super Series, in what many have described as a controversial choice.
Yildirim (16-0-0, 10 KO’s) , also known as ‘Mr Robot’, is well ranked across the board, standing in the top 5 for the WBC, WBA and IBF belts and ranked seventh for the WBO.
“Avni is a come-forward fighter. I don't think he knows how to go back," Eubank Snr said at the press conference. "He brings war, and that will make for a spectacular fight. Once my son gets past Arthur Abraham, he will do the same to Avni. Chris Eubank Jr. is an upgraded version of me.”
Eubank Jr. is the more experienced fighter out of the pair, boasting a record of 25-1-0 (19 KO’s) with his sole defeat coming at the hands of WBO World Middleweight Champion Billy Joe Saunders. Since then he has had notable wins against Dmitry Chudinov, Renold Quinlan and, most recently, Arthur Abraham.
Ahead of the start of the competition, Eubank Jr. has been training with the Money Team in Las Vegas in the lead up to Mayweather vs McGregor. He will also be putting his IBO Super Middleweight title on the line against the Turk. However, many have questioned the choice which pits him against potentially one of the best in the competition in the opening round of bouts.
Unbeaten 26-year-old Yildirim insists Eubank Snr has made a mistake by selecting him for his son.
“Chris Eubank, I respect. Before, he was a good fighter. His son I think is not a good boxer. I’m really, really ready for a great fight,” he said.
“Everybody thinks Chris Eubank Jr. wins but ‘Mr Robot’ – in September – will win. It is my time. This is Champions League, when the tournament finishes, I am [a] hero,” he said in Monte Carlo.
Yildirim has had a good amateur career and has boxed in various countries including Germany, America, Italy and Mexico. All but three of his victims have had winning records and he has regularly had to face opponents in their home country. In his sixth fight, Yildirim defeated former Light Heavyweight World Champion Glen Johnson, and he also holds impressive stoppage wins over Janne Forsman and Schiller Hyppolite. He has sparred against some of the best fighters in the world including James De Gale, and many think he could be the dark horse in the competition.
George Groves vs Jamie Cox
October 14th - SSE Wembley Arena, London, UK
Top seed, competition favourite and current holder of the WBA ‘Super’ World Super Middleweight title, ‘Saint’ George Groves (26-3-0, 19 KO’s) selected fellow Englishman, unbeaten Jamie Cox (24-0-0, 13 KO’s) from Swindon to face first at the SSE Wembley in October.
Despite the fact Cox is undefeated, Groves does not think he will be much of a hurdle to overcome. He told press in Monte Carlo:
“Me and Jamie are old buddies. We've known each other a long time now. I quite fancied a bit of a domestic dust-up. I've provided him a great opportunity, he's fighting for a world title. It's also a strategic move. It's a long tournament, so I picked the easy guy first.” Groves said.
“The biggest risk in this tournament is that you need to preserve yourself because the fights come around so quickly. I felt capable of beating any of the four unseeded guys but I think Cox is probably the easiest route. I'm not afraid to say that.”
“But there doesn't need to be trash talk. I picked him because he is the weakest. He looked out of his depth here, there are a lot of big names about.” He said.
The choice, as with Eubank Jr.’s, seemed to be a less obvious one to outsiders though, with Cox having a reputation as a something of a handful and all-round strong puncher, but Groves is confident in his ability to overcome his compatriot.
“I don't think Cox is big enough as a super-middleweight, I don't think he's had the tests that I've had, he hasn't been hit as hard by anyone as I do,” he said.
Former adversary Carl Froch, who fought (and defeated) Groves twice – including in their epic clash at Wembley Stadium in front of 80,000 people – has also taken the time to back his old foe, often discussing how he thinks Groves will succeed overall in the competition.
Southpaw Cox, who is ranked ninth by the WBA, also sees himself as the dark horse.
He told Sky Sports : “Maybe people will see me as the dark horse of the tournament. If that's the case, I'm ready to cause a shock. I train very hard and I've done it in the gym before with top champions and now I've got the platform to do it on the world stage.
“Maybe they might take their eye off the prize when it comes to me. More fool them if they do because I'll be training for every single fight like it is the final.” Said Cox.
Ticket for the fight at the SSE go on sale this Wednesday.
Jurgen Braehmer vs Rob Brant
The last – but by no means least – bout to be scheduled in the competition sees former two-time Light Heavyweight World Champion Jurgen Braehmer taking on undefeated American Rob Brant, with date and location yet to be decided.
Braehmer is quite considerably the most experienced boxer in the contest with a record of 48-3-0 (35 KO’s), but possibly to his detriment in keeping up with the hectic tournament schedule. With a possible 3 fights in 9 months, Braehmer’s age may well play a determining factor, with the German veteran, 38, considerably older than the rest of the competitors.
A southpaw fighter, Braehmer has not boxed as a Super Middleweight since 2007, but will move down a weight division to take part in the World Boxing Super Series at 168 pounds. This could seemingly give him an advantage against his first opponent, Brant, who is coming up a weight class from Middleweight.
The 38-year-old German lost his secondary 175-pound world title to Nathan Cleverly in October 2016, waived his contractually obliged rematch clause, instead moving down in weight to compete in the tournament, possibly in search of a higher paycheque.
“I am looking forward to the tournament,” said Braehmer in Monte Carlo. “I am prepared. The change of the weight class is not a challenge for me. I have made more than 30 professionals fights at super middleweight and will now return to my original weight class.”
Minnesota’s Brant (22-0-0, 15 KO’s) , who is 12 years Braehmer’s junior, is currently ranked at number two by the WBA at Middleweight. He is the same height as the German at 5ft11 but does have a slightly shorter reach.
Brant’s promoter, Greg Cohen told BoxingScene.com : “Rob’s been a little frustrated by the length of time it’s taken to get his mandatory opportunity, so we reached out to Sauerland and we were fortunate enough to be accepted into the tournament – the only American in the tournament and we like Rob’s chances.”
Brant has never fought as a pro as a Super Middleweight but his promoter does not feel that this will be an issue.
“Rob is a fighter who was a national amateur champion in the US at 178 pounds, fighting guys at 168 is a non- issue. When you look at the line-up everyone is really good but I don’t see anyone who I would consider a superstar or unbeatable,” he said.
It seems Braehmer agrees: “Since I could not pick any opponent anymore, I got the strongest guy," he said. "The others apparently avoided him. I look forward to the start of the tournament, and I am curious to find out when and where the fight will take place." He said.
The hate between Dillian Whyte and Lucas Browne is real – but both men say that there’s more than pride on the line when they clash for Whyte’s WBC Silver Heavyweight title at The O2 in London on March 24, live on Sky Sports.
The Heavyweight rivals came face-to-face at a press conference in central London today and left the media in no doubt that there is plenty of true venom behind their fierce social media spats are as they traded barbs before a face-off that ended in a frosty handshake.
That tense show of respect reflected the high stakes in the fight, with Whyte ranked number one in the WBC and former WBA champion Browne hunting a route to becoming a two-time champion – the pair will renew hostilities in two months’ time knowing the winner is in a prime spot to fight for a World crown this year.
“I hope I can fight for a World title this year,” said Whyte. “Sky Sports and Matchroom are behind me and now it's my time to shine. If I can put on a good show in front of a good crowd at The O2 then they can't deny me.
“I'm highly ranked in all the governing bodies and I think I could become mandatory in two of them, so this is a fight with a top contender against an undefeated former World champion - so you have to say that win this, I deserve a World title shot.
“He's a solid fighter and he's got KO power. Any big guy can chin anyone at any time, but he's just got power. A lot of people are in boxing because they are big men - not because they have skill or heart - they're just physically big and over-powering smaller fighters.
“The guy is a bully and calls himself 'an enforcer' so you have to deal with that in a head-on way. Robert Helenius wasn't like that, he was cool, so I was cool, but Lucas has stepped to me in a demeaning way that I don't like, I take that personally and I'm not going to let it slide. He's giving it the big one because he's got insecurities. This is my city, he's in my backyard, and I'm not going to let him take liberties with me.
“You can't intimidate me. I've been right at the bottom and I've risen up, so nothing fazes me and I'm not scared of anything, especially not Lucas Browne. I'm more scared of my Mum than him.
“Of course, I want the rematch with Anthony Joshua, but the fight with Deontay Wilder would make the AJ fight even bigger if I had the WBC belt. I'm always going to want the Joshua fight because we have history and we keep winning then the fight is inevitable, but there's more to this sport for just fighting for pride, it's business, and the fights have to fit my strategy. If you win a World title, you go down in history as a Heavyweight World Champion, it’s the biggest accolade in sport and that can never be taken from you.”
“The build-up will be spicy and fun, but I think it's going to a great fight and all that matters is winning on March 24,” said Browne. “He calls me a ‘bully’ – well I'm going to show him what a ‘bully’ can do. I made my points today, I'm coming to fight, not for a payday or to roll over, I want his belt and I want to be a World champion again.
“I asked him if he was going to shake my hand and he did - I'm a gentleman. I still hate the guy and want to smash his face in at The O2, but man to man, this is a sport and we should respect each other for fighting.
“I don't like judges' decisions - it's not good for me to have my life and my career in the hands of three people outside the ring. If I KO someone - there's no argument, that's what I like.
“We're both at the point in our careers where we need to put in a big performance to stake a claim to fight for a World title, that's going to make me put it all on the line, and I think it'll do the same for him.”

Undefeated World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight world champion Oscar Valdez , the man who swims with a fully-grown pet alligator, will begin the third year of his championship reign by defending his title against former World Boxing Association (WBA) super bantamweight world champion and current No. 2 world-rated featherweight contender Scott Quigg . For Valdez (23-0, 19 KOs), of Nogales, Mexico, this will be his fourth title defense since winning it in 2016. Quigg (34-1-2, 25 KOs), of Lancashire, England, will be making his U.S. debut. The Valdez vs. Quigg world championship fight will take place Saturday, March 10, under the stars at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. It will be televised live and exclusively at 10:30 p.m. EST on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and stream live on the ESPN App. Additional fights on the live telecast will be announced shortly.
Promoted by Top Rank ®, in association with Matchroom Boxing, tickets go on sale Tomorrow! Wednesday, January 17, at 1 p.m. ET / 10 a.m. PT. Priced at $206, $104, $53 and 27.50, including facility fees, they can be purchased online at AXS.com, by phone at (888) 9AXS-TIX, or by visiting the StubHub Center box office.
The all-action undercard will feature undefeated WBC Continental Americas super featherweight champion Andy Vences (20-0, 12 KOs), of San Jose, Calif; top-three world-rated junior welterweight contender Alex Saucedo (26-0, 16 KOs), of Oklahoma City; 2016 U.S. Olympian and three-time U.S. Amateur Champion Mikaela Mayer (3-0, 2 KOs), of Los Angeles; and 2012 Olympic silver medalist and middleweight contender Esquiva Falcäo (19-0, 13 KOs), of Vitoria, Brasil.
“I know that my March 10 world title defense against Scott Quigg will be a fun one for all the boxing fans because our styles combine perfectly to make a real war," said Valdez. "As usual, on March 10, I will leave it all in the ring at StubHub Center, to show everyone that I’m one of the best featherweights in the world"
“This is a fight that I’m really looking forward to. It’s a great fight," said Quigg. "I have a lot of respect for Oscar and his team. We’ve been in the gym together in the past, helping each other prepare for a fight. They are good people. I’ve been in training for four weeks already and now I’ve just linked up with Freddie Roach to begin the last eight weeks of camp. This is a great opportunity for me -- making my U.S. debut on a great platform on ESPN -- and I’m confident on March 10 I’ll become World champion again.”
"Oscar Valdez has passed every in-ring test with flying colors, but the biggest test of his professional career will take place on March 10 against Scott Quigg, who like Oscar, rarely leaves a fight in the hands of the judges. The fans watching at StubHub and live across ESPN's platforms are in for an exciting night and a sensational card, which will be announced shortly," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum ,.
"I'm delighted to get this fight made - I feel it's one of the best fights in the division right now," said Quigg's promoter Eddie Hearn. "Both guys like to come forward and throw aggressive combinations and I do not believe we will hear the final bell. What I do believe is that on March 10 Scott Quigg will become a two-weight World Champion in a fight of the year contender, live on ESPN"
"We’re very excited for the fight against Quigg. This fight will further showcase Oscar’s skills and will demonstrate that he is a star," said Frank Espinoza, manager of Valdez. "Oscar is one of the best in the world and against Quigg he’ll prove it once again.”
Valdez, who represented México in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, was the first Mexican fighter to qualify for two Olympic games. He is considered one of the bright lights of the featherweight division and a new face for boxing's next generation. He will be making the fourth defense of the world title he won on July 23, 2016 via a second-round knockout of undefeated No. 2 rated Matías Rueda. Rueda entered that fight having won his previous 10 bouts by stoppage. In his first defense, which took place, on November 5, 2016, Valdez blasted out No. 1 contender Hiroshige Osawa via a seventh-round TKO. On April 22, in his 2017 debut, his first pay-per-view event that featured him in the main event, Valdez went toe-to toe for 12 rounds with No. 1 contender Miguel Marriaga, winning a unanimous decision. Marriaga, a three-time world title challenger, went into that fight having won 15 of his previous 19 bouts by way of knockout. In his most recent fight, on September 22, he again went mano a mano in a 12-rounder that had the fans on their feet throughout the fight. This time Valdez won a unanimous decision over Genesis Servania, the No. 4 world-rated contender.
Quigg, who has fought all but once in his native England, is trained by Hall of Famer Freddie Roach. After capturing the WBA interim super bantamweight world title in 2012 and making one successful title defense that same year, he was elevated to WBA super bantamweight world champion in 2013. Quigg successfully defended that world title six times, four of them by way of knockout during his three-year reign. He lost the title via a split decision to International Boxing Federation (IBF) champion Carl Frampton in a 2016 title unification bout. Since that fight, Quigg has moved up to the featherweight division and won his past three fights, including a 12-round featherweight title elimination bout against Simion Viorel. Quigg is currently world-rated No. 2 by the IBF and No. 4 by the WBA.
