“What is really needed to solve some of these ills is simplicity, and in 2018 the World Boxing Super Series provided it. While Jose Ramirez was being developed into an attraction, the men who could define him as a fighter, men like Regis Prograis and Josh Taylor, entered the junior welterweight version of the WBSS. While Gilberto Ramirez was in the doldrums of defenses, Callum Smith used the WBSS to unify titles with a career-defining knockout of George Groves. Super bantamweight too, began its own WBSS tournament, one that already belongs to Japanese concussionista Naoya Inoue, who has failed thus far in his earnest search for a chin or liver that can endure his power. Oleksandr Usyk, meanwhile, brought the first WBSS tournament to a close by traversing the globe to prove he is the best cruiserweight on it.”
