In Orlando, Oct. 20:

A mandatory challenge between IBF World Bantamweight Champion Emmanuel Rodriguez from Puerto Rico and Australia’s unbeaten Jason Moloney.

"I am ready, I am hungry and prepared to go all the way," said Rodriguez.

"All I am doing is training hard, sparring hard and preparing myself for this bout. I am coming to win this fight, win the whole tournament and bring the trophy back to Puerto Rico."

The second Ali Trophy bout of the night is a cruiserweight clash between Cuban Yunier Dorticos and Poland’s Mateusz Masternak.

Miami-based Dorticos was one of the most exciting participants of the inaugural season of the World Boxing Super Series, and the KO artist believes he will win 200 lb division this season.

“The first season was great with its ups and downs and taught me a lot,” said Dorticos.

“I am now a different fighter and will show all my fans in the U.S. and boxing fans around the world what ‘The KO Doctor’ is all about. I am looking forward to taking home the Ali Trophy with me this season!”

I give Flanagan a good chance, but will he really leave the UK? He wouldn't leave before and that was easy money. Rougarou in the bayou is a hard first road trip.
