Murat Gassiev and Yunier Dorticos meet in the World Boxing Super Series.
Today at 1:45 pm ET on ITV4 in the United Kingdom, Super Channel in Canada, and hopefully again streaming on YouTube for U.S. viewers, the World Boxing Super Series continues in Russia, with cruiserweight titleholders Murat Gassiev and Yunier Dorticos meeting.
Gassiev (25-0, 18 KO) is defending the IBF title, and Dorticos (22-0, 21 KO) defending the WBA belt. The winner moves on to meet WBC and WBO titleholder Oleksandr Usyk in the tournament final this spring.
To get here, Gassiev knocked out Krzysztof Wlodarczyk in the third round last October, while Dorticos stopped Dmitry Kudryashov in two in September. Both can punch, and this matchup has some Fight of the Year-type ingredients on paper.
Hopefully, we’ll be able to bring you live coverage this afternoon, but if not, it’s a place for everyone to talk about the fight live as it goes down. This is one worth tuning in to see.
