THOUGH the World Boxing Super Series includes some of the world’s best super-middleweights and cruiserweights, there is only one American involved.

Unbeaten Saint Paul, Minnesota native Rob Brant has moved up from middleweight to enter the 168lb tournament, while there are no Americans in the cruiserweight class.

Promoter Richard Schaefer, who is working alongside Kalle and Nisse Sauerland to run the tournament, believes that is mainly down to the weight classes involved, but also due to a shift in focus away from America in the sport.
