The WBSS has crowned an undisputed champion in Oleksandr Usyk!
In a fight where hardly anyone foresaw a blowout Usyk solidified his elite status with pure dominance.
Now he has written his name in the history books alongside other documented undisputed champions! The WBSS is at the forefront of making this achievement more of a possibility.
The Cruiserweight division has now been resuscitated. In addition, fans now have a definitive answer to who the best is in the division.
It was a huge success and provided a blueprint as to why this is great for boxing. For years, the argument of “who’s the real champ” clutter’s boxing conversations with four governing bodies claim for their respective champion.
The tournament gave us everything, top quality opponents, crowd pleasing knockouts, all four major titles at risk and the best vs best for all the marbles.
The success of the WBSS has reached such heights that everyone is looking forward to the lower-weight division tournaments.
Next up: bantamweight and light welterweight.
The media creates a perverbial shadow over smaller divisions for the sake of spotlighting the higher ones. Consequently, the majority of fans tend to ignore divisions ranging from 105-122 pounds.
With the WBSS adding a bantamweight (118lbs) tournament, the average fan has shown more interest.
The ligh welterweight division took a major hit in 2017. Former undisputed champion Terence Crawford moved to welterweight which left the division ripe for a new king.
The champion of the WBSS in this division will no doubt have a stake in claiming that status.
In conclusion, the WBSS intends to crown a king in each division a tournament is held in.
Whether this is a direct or indirect mission, it is still a great on for boxing!
