RICHARD SCHAEFER is no stranger to making bold statements, and the veteran promoter has let loose with several over one of his latest ventures – the World Boxing Super Series.

Working alongside Kalle and Nisse Sauerland, Schaefer has helped develop the 16-man tournament, which spans two weight classes and kicks off in September.

Schaefer, having worked with the likes of Floyd Mayweather and Oscar De La Hoya, knows how to pull off huge promotions but feels this inaugural Super Series is bigger than those Las Vegas nights.
