Glowacki, Feigenbutz Are Reserves in World Boxing Super Series

The World Boxing Super Series is delighted to confirm the first two reserves for the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Former WBO Cruiserweight World Champion Krzysztof Glowacki (27-1, 17 KOs) and up-and-coming German youngster Vincent Feigenbutz (26-2, 23 KOs) are on stand-by to join the tournament if one of the original 16 participants is unable to continue. “The World Boxing Super Series will follow a strict schedule,” said Roberto Dalmiglio, Comosa`s Head of Management Board.

“The Muhammad Ali Trophy has been designed to crown the undisputed number one in less than 10 months and we will not accept any postponements or delays. If a fighter is unavailable to box on the proposed date, he will be replaced by a world-class reserve who has been in full training. In a physical sport like boxing, there is always the chance of an injury, so we need to be prepared. We are glad to announce the first two reserves, who are both exciting fighters, today.”

Said Glowacki: “I am ready to come into the tournament and prove the world that I am the best cruiserweight. I will be training very hard and be in perfect shape once my name is called.”
 
Said Feigenbutz: “The Muhammad Ali Trophy is the Greatest Prize in Boxing. I feel honored to be considered. I will train extremely hard to be ready should the opportunity present itself.”
 
Tomorrow night in Monaco, the Draft Gala will be held at the famed Grimaldi Forum. The live TV show (23:00 local, 5 PM ET) will be broadcasted in multiple territories and also be streamed live on www.WorldBoxingSuperSeries.com. The top four seeds, which will be set by the Comosa Board once the line-up has been completed, will select their opponents from the unseeded boxers.
 
In the World Boxing Super Series, 16 elite fighters – eight super-middleweights and eight cruiserweights – will battle it out in a bracket-style elimination tournament. In both divisions, there will be four quarter-finals (September / October 2017), two semi-finals (early 2018) and one final (May 2018), making for a total of 14 high-class fights.

Feigenbutz would get seriously beaten up by anybody in the top 20 in the division. He will be stepping up in class dramatically if he gets in

This Feigenbutts guy been fighting as a pro since his mid teens. Time to find out if he's the real deal.

Something tells me after we see the reserves at cruiserweight we're gonna be angry it isn't a 16-man tourney.

I suspect these guys knew they'd be unseeded and would be exiting in the first round, they can fight the winners down the line or join the semis without looking too ordinary upon losing at the first hurdle. I expect…
