In the new season WBSS to stage tournament among girls

Promoter Kalle Sauerland said that in the next season, the boxing fans will be able to see the first women's boxing fights in the World Boxing Super Series. Participation in the tournament is possible for, among others, the undisputed welterweight and lightweight champion - Cecilia Braekhus and Katie Taylor.

"It seems that women's boxing has reached such a level that we have a good enough fighters to hold such a tournament. It won't be easy, because each of the potential participants perform in different weight categories, but we seriously thought about it," said Sauerland, one of WBSS organizers.

The first season of the tournament was held in two weight classes (super middleweight and cruiserweight). This year's boxers compete in three divisions (bantamweight, light welterweight and cruiserweight). It is expected that WBSS' third season will start in January or February next year.
