The second season of the world Boxing series (WBSS) were in jeopardy, writes The Ring.
According to the publication, the organizers of the tournament had disagreements with sponsors.
It is also reported that some of the participants in the finals have not yet received bonuses for winning. This was stated by the world champion IBF in the superlight category weight Ivan Baranchik (19-0, 12 KO’s).
“I don’t know about that. Unfortunately, while I paid only the fee and win bonus no. In this tournament there is a fixed amount that you should have anyway, and there is also the win bonus. To me the same day I won, gave this a fixed amount, and the bonus for a month and one week delay, although the contract stipulates that the payment of this bonus will be for 5 days.
But no need, I think, to jump to conclusions, there certainly are not stupid people, and I think they’ll do the right thing” – the words of a boxer fightnews.info.
Recall that the first season was held in WBSS heavy and Middleweight weight. In the first division the winner was Oleksandr Usyk (16-0, 12 KO’s) in the second – Callum Smith (25-0, 18 KO’s).
We will remind, after a victory over ex-champion Tony Bellew (30-1-3, 20 KO), the Tendril expressed the desire to move to the heavyweight division.
Oleksandr Usyk won early ex-champion of the WBC version of the British Tony Bellew (30-1-3, 20 KO).
In the eighth round Barbel powerful left-hand blow knocked Bellew, and protected so all of their titles.
At a press conference after the fight Alexander Usik said that first he needs to rest after a hard battle, and also shared plans for the future.
Oleksandr Usyk knocked out Tony Bellew and defended all their belts
“I had to focus on each round. Bellew really is a dangerous fighter. I tried to calm themselves in the first four rounds. It was all good.
I had a really tough year. It was the most successful but the most difficult year. Now I think about how to spend time with the family.
The year was difficult psychologically and physically. The periods between the fights were too short, I never feel 100% ready. After the final battle with Murat by Gassieva I only had 30 days to recover. During training camp I was lying in bed looking at the ceiling, and I came up with the idea: “What am I doing here?”.
If I put a goal to become the undisputed champion in superteach? Of course. You need to set goals. If we don’t set goals – we will tracnem. We have set ourselves goals,” said Usyk.
As reported by the portal Znaia the Mustache made a Frank statement after the victory over Bellew.
