Mairis Briedis (26-1, 19 KO’s) goes in against Yuniel Dorticos (24-1, 22 KO’s) this Saturday behind closed doors with the the Muhammad Ali Trophy, IBF World title, and vacant Ring Magazine 200 lbs belt up for grabs at the Plazamedia Studios in Munich.
They went head-to-head…
“I am happy we are fighting in such a big boxing country as Germany,” said Briedis. “I trust my team, and I believe they and I have done a fantastic job preparing for this fight. So for Saturday, we should be ready. I can’t wait!
“Hopefully we can bring the fans a classic on Saturday night, a fight that people will remember and talk about for a long time.”
“I am fighting on behalf of Muhammad Ali’s legacy, we have a special connection to him in our team,” said Dorticos.
“44 years ago Muhammad Ali fought Richard Dunn here in Munich and he produced the last KO win of his career, and I am here to show why I am called ‘The KO Doctor’ and take home the Ali trophy, and become greatness just like the greatest of all times.
“Everybody knows that I come to give it my all, that’s what fighters do, that’s what champions do. To all my fans in Miami and worldwide I give you my love and support, and on Saturday night I will perform at the highest level possible.”
“Boxing is back, big-time boxing is back. Live from the Plazamedia Studios this Saturday night in Munich it’s the final of the World Boxing Super Series, the cruiserweight division, the best versus the best,” said Kalle Sauerland. “We have seen it this season already with Inoue vs Donaire, Prograis vs Taylor, the number ones against the number twos, and on Saturday night we have an absolute barnstormer!”
