It's a fact: we love tournaments. The World Boxing Super Series, while still flawed in a few ways, has for the most part brought a heap of good pairings and action. The cruiserweight final between Oleksandr Usyk and Murat Gassiev may not have been as explosive as most of us hoped, but it was still high quality stuff, and crowned an emperor in the division.
Where does Usyk go now? How could he do at heavyweight? Would it be worth it to attempt to rule cruiserweight for a spell?
Also, there's some Jaime Munguia business to discuss.
This weekend, Mikey Garcia and Robert Easter lock horns in a lightweight clash that unifies two belts there. It's a nice solid matchup on Showtime that features the return of heavyweight Luis Ortiz.
Across the pond, Joseph Parker and Dillian Whyte are featured in the main event of a Sky Box Office card. On the undercard, Dereck Chisora vs Carlos Takam. So there's no shortage of fights this week.
