It sure looks like the cruiserweight division is enjoying a surge of both talent and popularity, thanks to the World Boxing Super Series, and more specifically, Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev's tremendous recent performances.

This week on Knuckles and Gloves Boxing Radio, boxing writer/historian Patrick Connor is joined by Compubox operator and fellow fight history admirer Aris Pina, and the whole cruiserweight scenario will be laid bare.
