Ray Flores Breaks Down WBSS Gassiev vs Dorticos – Cruiserweight world champions Murat Gassiev (IBF) and Yunier Dorticos (WBA) are set to meet early next year in a WBSS semi-final.
The mainly European World Boxing Super Series put on two eight man tournaments in the super middleweight and cruiserweight divisions and eight fights later, the fields are down to four men in each tourney.
Just two of the eight fights took place in the United States, with Yunier Dorticos dispatching hard hitting Dmitry Kudryashov in San Antonio and Gassiev’s win last week over Krzystof Wlodarczyk in Newark, New Jersey being the two. It seems only natural that Gassiev and Dorticos will meet in the semi-finals in a fight planned for the United States in the January – February of 2018 time frame.
Our “road warrior” analyst Ray Flores was at both of the American appearances for the WBSS and he got a first hand look at both men in action. Here he breaks down the semi-final meeting between Gassiev and Dorticos.
