inoue wants donaire 1st round
Glad they're doing another one but they need to get the current competition finals closed asap.
I'm gagging to watch Gassiev vs Usyk!!
I don't think that happens, and I say that because the WBSS has a pretty strict seeding process: titlists first, each ranked by TBRB ratings. Inoue is the regular WBA titlist, so I think he's going to have to face one of the big four titlists. However, if Oubaali ends up competing without the WBC title (which could happen, since it sounds like his fight with Sor Chitpattana might fall through), then it's possible Inoue gets to pick Donaire.
This article has a slightly different lineup: with Burnett, Inoue, Rodriguez, Tete, as well as Haskins, Payano, Donaire, and JFE. Don't put too much stock in it, but still a good tourney.
but boxing finds a way to prioritize big fights/money over anything else
from inoue's perspective, he wants the biggest names to build his resume
burnett is kind of, eh
Is there any word on that fight being re- scheduled?
Swap Donaire with Luis Nery and thats literally 4 world belts + Top 8 in 1 tournaemt
I hope so. Inoue and Burnett are the 2 best guys there and the winner of that would win the whole thing.
July apparently but they're still not set on a venue so its not been announced, looks like Jeddah (Arabia) is off, they'd like it in Russia but Usyk may be opposed to it for obvious reasons but that would be the biggest market for the fight.
sounds like Payano is set to join
Negrete seems to think there might be space for him in this tourney if he wins his next fight
Michael Dasmarinas is trying to get in too. Hints that Moloney is in the running too.
seems Mark John Yap isn't interested
Separate names with a comma.
