Glasgow , 15th October
This tournament has been described as the Champions League of boxing in the past and when you walk into the press conference you certainly get that feel . Representation from all the major media outlets were in attendance from BBC to ITV (STV) , then you have your big players in the boxing media like Ring Mag and IFL in attendance , but something the WBSS has got right when it comes to the media is that it’s not ” Job’s for the Boys” which is usually the case with these big showpiece events . The World Boxing Super Series have on more than one occasion now made space for small independent outlets like myself which is a breath of fresh air .
Nisse Sauerland got thing’s underway in the presser outlining exactly just what this tournament is trying to do ….build stars . Nisse also emphasised that this tournament is aimed at a global audience so although they faced criticism for Season 1 final being in Saudi Arabia they won’t change . Josh Taylor looked in fantastic shape and we found out why . Taylor now has a permanent training base in London which means he isn’t spending the full camps . Taylor said he ready fight now, a couple of weeks out from fight night and predicts still with some hard training to come in the next two weeks he will be in the best shape of his career .
After the initial press conference we had time to catch up with Josh and Nisse
