31-year-old Russian cruiserweight Dmitry Kudryashov (21-1, 21 KOs) is the latest to officially sign up for the upcoming World Boxing Super Series. This announcement nearly rounds out then entire field of eight participating cruiserweights, which now includes:
- Oleksandr Usyk, WBO titleholder
- Mairis Briedis, WBC titleholder
- Murat Gassiev, IBF titleholder
- Yunier Dorticos, WBA titleholder
- Marco Huck
- Krzysztof Wlodarczyk
- Dmitry Kudryashov
Kudryshov, who just avenged his sole defeat last month by TKO stoppage, says he expects to leave the tourney with an armful or trinkets, as reported by WBN:
“I am the Russian Hammer and I will hammer my way to four titles and the Muhammad Ali trophy,” Kudryashov said.
“The tournament is loaded with champions and former champions but nobody has a better KO ration than me. I have a lot of respect for my fellow participants but whover gets in my way will be knocked out.”
Krzysztof Glowacki is expected to be named the tournament’s final entrant in the cruiserweight division, but that official announcement has yet to be made.
