This Saturday, the World Boxing Super Series Cruiserweight (200 lb.) tournament sees the last match of the quarterfinal round. Looking to take the last semifinal spot and a showdown with Yunier Dorticos will be IBF champion Murat Gassiev (24-0; 17 KO) and challenger Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (53-3-1; 37 KO). Gassiev vs. Wlodarczyk takes place this Saturday, October 21 in New Jersey. The card has a fight time of 9:30 p.m. ET and if you’re lucky you can find it on Audience in the US, Super Channel in Canada, SAT.1 in Germany.
Russia’s Gassiev is only 24 years old, but is already a 6 year pro and undefeated world champion who has made it up to #2 on the Ring Magazine Cruiserweight ranking list. He started fighting in the US in 2015, and has faced good competition, culminating in a fight last December with the highly accomplished Denis Lebedev. That was the biggest fight of Gassiev’s career, and he rose to the occasion, taking a hard fought split decision win to claim Lebedev’s IBF title and his biggest career win to date. This is his first fight since.
Wlodarczyk has the significant experience edge, as he’s been a fixture of this division for years. He’s a 17 year pro, and a former champion, with a four year run as WBC champion a few years back. He lost that belt in 2014, and is just 4-0 in the 3 years since. If you were making a list of all time great Cruiserweights, you would likely put Wlodarczyk above Gassiev. But at 36 years old, he seems on the way down. Ring Magazine currently ranks him at #8 in the division.
