World Boxing Super Series official draft set for July 8 in Monte Carlo
The World Boxing Super Series will kick off in dramatic fashion on July 8 when the famed Grimaldi Forum will host the official draft. Starting in September, eight top cruiserweights, including the three undefeated world champions Mairis Briedis (WBC), Yunier Dorticos (WBA) and Murat Gassiev (IBF), as well as eight elite super-middleweights, including WBA Super Champion George Groves, will battle out a bracket-style elimination tournament to determine the undisputed number one in each division.
To set the hotly-anticipated quarter-final match-ups, a special procedure has been put in place.
“In the stunning venue of the Grimaldi Forum and through a never-seen-before live process, the fight calendar will take shape,” said Roberto Dalmiglio, Comosa’s Head of Management Board. “For the first time in boxing history, 16 stars will be on the same stage, with the top seeds picking their opponents from the unseeded boxers during a live broadcast. There could not be a more spectacular way to kick off the quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy.”
