The World Boxing Super Series, like any other area of Boxing and Sport, has been placed on hold while the world tries to adapt to the latest COVID-19 Pandemic, but it’s the WBSS that have made the first inovative move to try and cater to their audience to keep them engaged, and how have they done this?
The eWBSS Heavyweight Legends Tournament!
Yes that’s right! A virtual version of their landmark tournament which will be simulated on EA Sports’ “Fight Night Champions” game.
The Co-Founder of the WBSS, Kalle Sauerland, made the announcement of the eWBBS over the weekend which saw a very quick turn around as the first bout took place just a day after the draw of which Heavyweight Legends would take part in it.
So, 8 names of Heavyweights of the past have been drawn and been matched up to see who will fight who, the schedule was released on to the WBSS Social Media.
The first match-up, which took place today was between Muhamad Ali and Evander Holyfield where viewers saw a victorious Ali end the fight within the distance with a thrilling 5th round K.O.
After all 4 eliminator fights have taken place the first semi-final will take place on Friday 27th March and the second on Saturday 28th with the final taking place on Sunday 29th March to see who really is the Greatest Heavyweight Legend.
Could we see Muhamed Ali lift the trophy named after himself? Or could we see the youngest of the bunch, David Haye swipe the prize?
We’re actually quite excited to see who comes out on top, if you are too you can tune in and watch on the World Boxing Super Series Facebook page every day this week at 5 pm, GMT.
Back your champion!
