The draft gala for the second season of the World Boxing Super Series will take place this Friday in Moscow, Russia and today the tournament got some welcomed news.
One of the weight classes will be super-bantamweight for the second season and despite rumors recently suggesting that Belfast’s World Champion Ryan Burnett would not feature, he will.
Sauerland confirmed the news a short time ago:

A strong lineup indeed with all but one of the recognized four world champions included.
Unlike last year, the above will have a broadcast home in the US too in its second season.
The tournament will be shown on DAZN which is $9.99 per month and also includes a vast amount of boxing and MMA content.
American fight fans will have to start making the choice of which streaming service and premium TV service they want for their boxing coverage soon enough.
To keep them all makes boxing an increasingly more expensive hobby to be a fan in America these days between Showtime, HBO, ESPN+ and now DAZN.
