Murat Gassiev vs. Krzysztof Wlodarczyk WBSS cruiserweight quarterfinals

*EDMONTON, Canada (October XX, 2017)* – The World Boxing Super Series
(WBSS) tournament returns to America this Saturday night for the fourth and
final cruiserweight division quarterfinals bout, when undefeated
International Boxing Federation (IBF) champion *Murat “Iron” Gassiev* makes
his first title defense against former two-time world champion *Krzysztof
“Diablo” Wlodarczyk* to air live in Canada exclusively on Super Channel
from Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.

The “Gassiev vs. Wlodarczyk” card, starting at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT,
continues live coverage of the highly entertaining WBSS tournament for
Canadian boxing fans, exclusively on Canada’s boxing destination network,
Super Channel, which acquired the rights in Canada to broadcast the World
Boxing Super Series from MP & Silva, a leading international media company
that provides media rights, digital, technology and sponsorship services.

The 24-year-old Gassiev (24-0, 17 KOs) is a Russian who now lives and
trains in the famed Big Bear, California. Last December, he won a 12-round
split decision from Dennis* Lebedev* (29-1) in Moscow to capture the IBF
crown.

“I promise that I’m going to come into the ring to win and do everything
possible to get this victory,” Gassiev said. “I want to take advantage of
this opportunity to fight the best boxers in my weight class. It is a great
honor for me to fight in the World Boxing Super Series for the Muhammad Ali
Trophy.

“I have a very serious opponent in Krzysztof Wlodarcyzk who is a two-time
world champion and his resume speaks for itself. He has fought the best and
I’m looking forward to a very hard fight.”
