Josh Taylor (Scotland) vs Ryan Martin (United States) and Ryan Burnett (Northern Ireland) vs Nonito Donaire (Philippines) will battle it out as they begin the quest for the Muhammad Ali Trophy on November 3 at the SSE Hydro, Glasgow, Scotland.
Taylor, Martin, Burnett and Donaire are the marvelous ingredients when the World Boxing Super Series comes to Scotland’s biggest city.
One night, two main events, a spectacular doubleheader.
In an Ali Trophy Super-Lightweight Quarter-Final WBC Silver titlist and No 2 seed Josh ‘The Tartan Tornado’ Taylor faces Ryan ‘Blue Chip’ Martin.
“I cannot wait for November 3rd in Glasgow,” said Taylor. “I’m delighted to be boxing in Scotland in front of my home fans. On November 3rd, the Scots will get to see the World Boxing Super Series show come to town and I will put on a winning performance to keep them singing.”
“My team and I believe I can win the Muhammad Ali Trophy and both World Title belts and the first step on that journey is in Glasgow against Ryan Martin. I will be ready.”
In an Ali Trophy Bantamweight Quarter-Final No 1 seed Ryan Burnett and Nonito ’The Filipino Flash’ Donaire face off for the WBA ‘Unified’ World Championship and the WBC Diamond Title.
“Donaire is a great fighter,” said Burnett. “I have always admired him, but now I must prepare to beat him. I am someone who wants to prove I am the best by beating the best. The WBSS has given me the opportunity to achieve that dream.”
Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer, Kalle Sauerland: "There are some big UK boxing nights in 2018 but this doubleheader has so much depth and quality. It’s what the WBSS is all about," said Sauerland. "Following on in the UK from Groves vs Eubank Jr in Manchester it’s great to bring the biggest show in boxing to Scotland. In addition, we will have a massive UK undercard to complete the fireworks."
The Season II Quarter-Finals of the World Boxing Super Series will feature doubleheaders over six fight nights on back-to-back weekends, starting on Sunday, October 7 at the Yokohama Arena, Yokohama, Japan.
