What is the significance of the Muhammad Ali Trophy?Before his passing, Muhammad Ali gave his blessing before the official launch of the World Boxing Super Series to have his name lent to the prize. The trophy was specially created by world-respected late artist Silvio Gazzaniga, who is also known for his design of the FIFA World Cup trophy.
What is one of the most well-known fights in the World Boxing Super Series?There is a significant amount of agreement amongst many sports journalists that the WBSS Bantamweight Ali Trophy final that took place between Naoya 'Monster' Inoue and Nonito "The Filipino Flash" Donaire was one of the best boxing matches of the year in 2019. It was named Fight Of The Year by such sports news outlets as ESPN, Yahoo Sports, Ring Magazine, Boxing News, Eastside Boxing and others. Other fights to get press notice were the Regis Prograis vs Josh Taylor for the Super-Lightweight Ali Trophy Final and Yuniel Dorticos knockout in the tenth round of Andrew Tabiti.
Who was the first boxer to win the World Boxing Super Series to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy?The first season of the World Boxing Super Series had Oleksandr Usyk beat Murat Gassiev in July 2018 to become the very first fighter to win the Muhammad Ali Trophy. Usyk's win also made him only the third fighter ever to become undisputed cruiserweight champion after Evander Holyfield in 1988 and O’Neil Bell in 2006. A couple of months later, Callum Smith took on George Groves, winning the super middleweight bracket in a fight in Saudi Arabia.
How is the World Boxing Super Series different?The World Boxing Super Series is an elimination-style tournament, which is done very rarely in boxing. It was inspired, at least partially, by how things were done with the Super Six World Boxing Classic some years earlier. Generally, boxing has a one-fight at a time approach, but some sports journalists and enthusiasts say that the World Boxing Super Series tournament method is making boxing better. It provides the ability for sometimes relatively unknown fighters to know who they are up against next immediately (as dictated by tournament outcome) as opposed to the wait-and-see approach that is typical in a lot of boxing. Along with the timeliness, the next match always ends up being a quality opponent. The World Boxing Super Series has made stars out of some of its fighters as well as the prize money being a big enough amount to really change the lives of the winners.
