Former World Champion Krzysztof Glowacki (27-1, 17 KOs) and fellow Polish star Mateusz Masternak (39-4, 26 KOs) have signed-up to act as reserves in the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight quarter-finals.
Assuming they are not needed to act as reserves, the fighters will box on the undercards of the quarter-final they are assigned to.
Glowacki, who’s only defeat came at the hands of tournament favourite Aleksandr Usyk last year, is the reserve for the Mairis Briedis vs Mike Perez quarter-final and WBC World Title match-up at the Riga Arena, Latvia on September 30.
While former European Title holder Masternak has been named as reserve for the Murat Gassiev vs Krzysztof Wlodarczyk quarter-final and IBF World Title bout.
Ticket details for the World Boxing Super Series’ quarter-final between Briedis and Perez on September 30th at the Riga Arena in Latvia will be announced shortly.
