Two huge WBSS shows in the U.S. this October

Back-to-back doubleheader Ali Trophy Quarter-Finals in Orlando and New Orleans:

Dorticos vs Masternak and Rodriguez vs Moloney on October 20 at the CFE Arena, Orlando, USA and Prograis vs Flanagan at the U.N.O. Lakefront Arena, New Orleans, USA on October 27.

“We are very much looking forward to our U.S. events,” said Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer, Kalle Sauerland.

“An action-packed package, with four spectacular Ali Trophy quarter-finals, awaits U.S. fight fans when the World Boxing Super Series comes to the United States.”

The Season II Quarter-Finals of the World Boxing Super Series will feature doubleheaders over six fight nights on back-to-back weekends, starting on Sunday October 7 at the Yokohama Arena, Yokohama, Japan.

In Orlando, Oct. 20:

A mandatory challenge between IBF World Bantamweight Champion Emmanuel Rodriguez from Puerto Rico and Australia’s unbeaten Jason Moloney and a cruiserweight clash between Cuban Yunier Dorticos and Poland’s Mateusz Masternak.

Miami-based Dorticos was one of the most exciting participants of the inaugural season of the World Boxing Super Series, and the KO artist believes he will win the trophy this season.

“The first season was great with its ups and downs and taught me a lot,” said Dorticos.

“I am now a different fighter and will show all my fans in the U.S. and boxing fans around the world what ‘The KO Doctor’ is all about. I am looking forward to taking home the Ali Trophy with me this season!”

In New Orleans, Oct. 27:

American Regis Prograis vs. Terry Flanagan from England for the WBC ‘Interim’ World Super-Lightweight Championship and WBC Diamond Title, the second Ali Trophy quarter-final will be announced in due course.

Prograis was born and raised n New Orleans – the city is tattooed across his chest – but had to relocate to Houston after Hurricane Katrina. He is looking forward to begin his quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy in his former hometown.

“ xxxx ,” said Prograis.
