Briedis, Dorticos Square Off In Cruiserweight Final

By Intu Boxing   - @intuboxing

Hold onto your hats folks, fight fans finally have a jam-packed weekend of action to look forward to.

In the first of this weekend’s fight previews. Intuboxing.com casts eyes over the battle for supremacy in the 200-pound division. As Lativa’s Mairis Briedis will do battle with Cuba’s ‘KO Doctor’, Yunier Dorticos at the Plazamedia Broadcasting Center in Munich, Germany. The prize? Well actually ladies and gentleman, there are a few. For those that might need a jog of the memory this is the final of the second World Boxing Super Series Cruiserweight edition. So the Muhammad Ali trophy and prize money awaits the victor. Along with the IBF World Cruiserweight title AND the vacant RING magazine cruiserweight strap.

Tale of the tape: At 35 years of age, Briedis is the older man by a year. And, the marginally more experienced. Having fought twice more than his Cuban foe. The respective records stand at 26-1-0 for the Latvian Punisher to Dorticos 24-1-0. Whilst Briedis might have the edge in experience. All of the physical advantages sit firmly in the Cuban’s corner. Dorticos at 6’3 stands two inches taller than Briedis 6’1. But has a whopping five inch reach advantage at 80 inches to Briedis’ 75.

Their route to the final: Both men needed to resurrect their careers after suffering their sole losses as a professionals in the first iteration of the tournament. Both men reached the semi-finals of the first World Boxing Super Series only to be beaten by Murat Gassiev (Dorticos) and eventual winner, Oleksandr Usyk (Briedis) respectively.

Doritcos earned 2019 Knockout of the Year honours in his semi-final victory, with the Miami-based Cuban flattening previously unbeaten Andrew Tabiti in the 10th round. Brieidis encounter wouid prove to be a far more controversial affair, where he scored a 3rd round knockout of Krzysztof Glowacki in a wild affair which resulted in two separate protests.

The ongoing dilemma delayed the tournament final by several months, with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic twice postponing the event in 2020. At last, fight night is nearly upon us!

And the winner? A quick glance at their records shows that despite Dorticos having a better knockout ratio, Brieidis has fought and beaten the better opposition. This is reflected in the bookmakers odds. With virtually every major UK-based betting company making the Latvian an 8/15 favourite.
