WBSS SEMIFINAL MATCHES ARE IN JEOPARDY


PhilBoxing.com




There’s mounting concern among those connected with the World Boxing Super Series that the ambitious single-elimination tournament will discontinue before the second season is complete, multiple industry sources told The Ring.

Turmoil has been brewing behind the scenes among the board at Comosa AG, the group banking the tourney. At the heart of the issue: some investors have funded more than their promised share; others haven’t met their due, per sources. Roberto Dalmiglio, a former group commercial director at media rights company MP & Silva, is head of management board at Comosa.

The semifinals are slated for February and March, and the matchups are set, but as of now, there’s been no sites secured for any of the six bouts; no dates, either. The second round of the tournament is jeopardy of falling apart, per sources, but there’s hope the board will solve the issues.

The World Boxing Super Series wasn’t able to provide comment at this time. DAZN, which is distributing Season 2 of the World Boxing Super Series, didn’t have comment when reached by The Ring.

Several fighters are still waiting for their bonuses to be paid out from their quarterfinal bouts, according to sources. The first round of Season 2 completed in October.

The World Boxing Super Series contract requires participants to submit invoices for purses, an uncommon practice. The contract stipulates that fighters receive payment within five business days of invoice submission; in some cases, that promise has been met. Boxers are typically handed a paycheck the day of the fight.

In all, there’s 24 boxers who entered Season 2, which features cruiserweights, bantamweights and junior welterweights. Twelve fighters now remain.

The semifinal matchups that are in jeopardy of being cancelled: Josh Taylor-Ivan Baranchyk; Regis Prograis-Kiryl Relikh; Zolani Tete-Nonito Donaire; Naoya Inoue-Emmanuel Rodriguez; Mairis Briedis-Krzysztof Glowacki; Yunier Dorticos-Andrew Tabiti.
