Dorticos is back: “My style is what boxing fans want to see!”

Yunier Dorticos (22-1, 21 KOs) promises fireworks in Season II of the World Boxing Super Series, and he vows to begin in ‘KO Doctor’ mode in the Cruiserweight Quarter-Final against Mateusz Masternak in Orlando, Florida on Saturday.

The Miami-based Cuban fighter is on a mission: He wants to convert a bitter KO defeat in last season’s semi-final to Murat Gassiev to being the man with the ‘Greatest Prize in Boxing’ in his hands.

“I am back to prove to the world and to the World Boxing Super Series what I am all about. Winning the Muhammad Ali Trophy will be one of the biggest achievements I will accomplish,” said Dorticos.

“I am extremely happy, excited and thankful to have been chosen once again for the second season of the WBSS. I have learned from my defeat in Season 1 and I am coming back stronger than ever. All I look forward to is taking home the trophy with me this season.”

‘The KO Doctor’ tasted his own medicine against Gassiev, but he is determined to come back and show boxing fans that he is still one of the biggest players in the 200 lb division.

“The defeat to Gassiev hurt, but when you get knocked down you get up again. You train harder and make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Dorticos.

“Everyone that has seen me knows I’m an exciting price fighter with superb boxing skills and power in both of my hands, I leave it all in the ring for my fans.”

“My aggressive firework style it’s what my fans and boxing fans all over the world want to see.”

Dorticos has an impressive 91% KO ratio, and he expects to prescribe all his powers to improve the statistics when meeting Poland’s Mateusz Masternak (41-4, 28 KOs) October 20 at the CFE Arena in Orlando, Florida.

“When I look at Masternak, I already see a man with KO written in his face,” said Dorticos. “Believe me the knockout is coming. I am going to KO everyone in front of me in this season.”

The winner of Dorticos vs Masternak faces USA’s Andrew Tabiti who beat Russia’s Ruslan Fayfer unanimously on points in their quarter-final in Ekaterinburg, Russia.

The second Ali Trophy quarter-final bout of the huge night of boxing October 20 at the CFE Arena, Orlando, Fl., USA is an IBF World Bantamweight Championship clash between Puerto Rico’s Emmanuel Rodriguez and Australia’s Jason Moloney.
