World Boxing Super Series News, Pianeta IBO Title Bout, More

By Per Ake Persson

World Boxing Super Series: With Scandinavian network MTG/Viasat as one of the investors in Comosa AG - who are organizing the WBSS Tournament - it was only natural to see a Scandinavian enter and Erik Skoglund, 26-0 is now on.

Skoglund have never fought at super middleweight, and there will no tuneup. He´s world ranked at light heavyweight and could be one of four seeded fighters. If yes, the planned Sauerland show on September 30 in Stockholm could be the site for Skoglund vs TBA in one of the quarterfinals of the WBSS.

Thus far the WBSS have had a clear dominance of European fighters and while the fighters that have entered are all good, one still has to ask who´s going to sell PPV events / tickets and another question is where are the Americans?
