Having previously held the WBO Super Middleweight World Championship, ‘Zurdo’ is ready to conquer another weight class on his road to glory.
Ranked #1 by the WBA and #5 by the WBC in the light heavyweight division, Dominic Boesel formerly held the WBA Interim Heavyweight World Championship in 2020 and currently holds the IBO World Light Heavyweight Title.
