Briedis and Yuniel Dorticos for the Muhammad Ali Trophy,

said Bunn. “It feels good to be back in the ring and to
continue my journey towards becoming a World Champion.”
Also on the card is highly rated IBF European Middleweight
Champion Denis Radovan. Radovan claimed two victories last
year as he won the IBF title against Ronny Mittag in April
before marking his UK debut against Luke Blackledge on the
undercard of the WBSS Super-Lightweight final in October.
The unbeaten 27-year-old will be defending his title against
tough Polish middleweight Robert Talarek (24-13-3, 16 KOs).
“It’s an honour to showcase my talent on the biggest boxing
tournament in history,” said Radovan. “I seriously can’t
wait to hear that bell ring so I can do what I do best. I’m
pumped and ready to bring the heat!”
One of Germany’s most exciting prospects Sophie Alisch will
be fighting for the first time in 2020, as the 18-year-old
known as ‘Die Zukunft’ (The Future) returns to the ring
following her unanimous decision victory over world title
challenger Irma Adler in November 2019.
Alisch it aiming to impress as she faces another former
world title challenger in Edina Kiss (15-13, 9 KOs).
“It’s a great honour for me to be fighting on a prestigious
and global event like the World Boxing Super Series,” said
Alisch. “I am looking forward to continuing my development.
If everything works out well I want a title fight in 2021!”
