Two more dates and locations have been confirmed for the World Boxing Super Series quarterfinals. First, on October 20th, Emmanuel Rodriguez vs. Jason Moloney and Yunier Dorticos vs. Mateusz Masternak go down at Orlando, Florida’s CFE Arena. One week later, Regis Prograis will take on Terry Flanagan in “Rougarou’s” native New Orleans.
Prograis vs. Flanagan does not have a co-feature as of yet.
Rodriguez (18-0, 12 KO), ranked #4 in the bantamweight field, burst onto the scene in May by comprehensively schooling Paul Butler for the IBF title. Moloney (17-0, 14 KO) was a standout amateur whose pro record most prominently features a cut stoppage of Kohei Kono. This is one of the closest matchups in the tournament and should be quite entertaining.
Dorticos (22-1, 21 KO) savaged Dmitry Kudryashov in the opening round of the last cruiserweight tournament and was extremely competitive with Murat Gassiev before succumbing to the Russian’s power in the twelfth. Masternak (41-4) has been on the wrong end of numerous questionable decisions, most notably a split against Johnny Muller wherein he dropped the hometown fighter twice, but did manage to stop the ever-dangerous Youri Kalenga in April.
Prograis (22-0, 19 KO) is an all-action young slugger in against a capable veteran on Flanagan (33-1, 13 KO). This should be a joy to watch.
