Oleksandr Usyk vs. Mairis Briedis Preview | WORLD BOXING SUPER SERIES

With the Cruiserweight wheat being
separated from the chaff in the opening round of the World Boxing Super Series,
the 4 remaining fighters battling it out for 200 pound supremacy have more
than proven themselves both in the tournament, and over the course of their
careers, amassing a combined record of 82 wins in 82 fights, including 67 wins by
way of knockout. And while the semi-final deathmatch featuring sluggers Murat
Gassiev and Yunier Dorticos has most fans slobbering in anticipation,
those with an eye for some of the sports finer points are making a mess of their
own over the other semi-final pitting WBO champion Oleksandr Usyk against WBC
champ Mairis Briedis. Now, make no mistake about it, both Usyk and Briedis can crack with
the best of them, but their respective game plans are more feet-first, as opposed to
face-first. The Latvian Briedis has an uncanny
knack of leading foes, as if on a leash, around the ring and into job counseling,
while Usyk, the 2012 Olympic Heavyweight gold medalist is more of a
balletic brute, creating angles of attack through dance, and emergency MRIs
through fist. But don’t for a moment think either man survives by his wits, or
feet, alone. Both men finish, spectacularly, but with slightly
different MO’s. Of the two men, Briedis carries a slightly bigger punch, with a
single shot from either hand, from any angle,
capable of turning an evening on its ear. Usyk, while lacking the raw strength
of Briedis, has the slight edge at hand speed, which he’ll have no
qualms violently exploiting. it’s a match-up that has everything for
everyone…. tactics AND terror. Power and poise… and
cruiserweights stakes that have never been higher.

  1. I’m sorry but briedis is not the harder puncher and we are going to see this in the fight. He didn’t even stop 🛑 Huck who usyk did.

  2. They all are best, there is no good or bad, they all have the strong and weak sides and in this level you cannot predict anything l say 50/50 Briedis Usyk 
    I read the Russian news that the Klitschko was saying that Briedis is one of the hardest punchers he was sparring with and Usyk Trainer say that it's going to be hard for Usyk because the Briedis is more skilled and smart than ever thinks. l can not give credit for no one, they both are good can't wait for fight.

  3. This is a good fight! I like both fighters and for me this fight is too early in their careers. Who ever wins can go on to be a star, but the other also deserves to be a star, but will have to build their careers again.

  4. Mairis Briedis is favorite. Mairis got much powerfull punches. Usyk is good, but Mairis ir better.
    Mairsi Briedis right now is the best cruiserweight..


    Briedis vs Dorticos.

  5. Two options. If Briedis will use hes power, Briedis will knockout Usyk but if Usyk will use hes speed, making fast moves and fast lowkicks, Usyk will win, points.
