pittbox Posted September 2, 2018 Share Posted September 2, 2018 It's now confirmed that we're going to see another WBSS cruiserweight tournament in this year, as bantamweight and light middleweight brackets were announced earlier. Here are the fights: Mairis Briedis v Noel Gevor Yunier Dorticos v Mateusz Masternak Krzysztof Głowacki v Maxim Vlasov Ruslan Fayfer v Andrew Tabiti I think that the matches look competitive and I don't see a clear favorite in any of these bouts, except of Briedis v Gevor. It looks to me like the Latvian seems to be also a favorite to win the whole thing. I like the presence of Andrew Tabiti. We're also going to see two Russians: undefeated and untested Fayfer, as well as more experienced Maxim Vlasov who has a nice win streak as a cruiserweight. Two Poles, Głowacki and Masternak are also in the tournament. Głowacki's shape after the fight against Usyk is kind of questionable, but we can't cross him out. Masternak is very talented, but he used to make huge tactical mistakes in his biggest fights. His last win against Kalenga is his most impressive one. If he fights as good against Dorticos, I think he has a chance, but the Cuban's going to be a favorite. Noel Gevor's biggest wins are against Isiah Thomas and Stephen Simmons, which doesn't look too impressive. You can make a strong case that he beat Włodarczyk, though.
