The second World Boxing Super Series tournament in the cruiserweight arrives at the semifinal between Mairis Briedis (25-1, 18 KOs) and Krzysztof Glowacki (31-1, 19 KOs) Saturday night at the majestic Arena Riga, Latvia.

This Friday the official weighing of the evening took place, which both warriors breezed without problem:
Mairis Briedis (25-1, 18 KOs), tipped 89.9 kg / 198.1 lbs.
“I am one hundred percent ready for a real power struggle. Everyone in this tournament is in great shape and they are excellent fighters. It`ll be a great fight, I am grateful to be in this position. I am at home fighting for the Green and Gold Belt against a worthy rival,” said Briedis.
Krzysztof Glowacki (31-1, 19 KOs), tipped 89.6 kg / 197.5 lbs.
“I feel perfect, I hope the fight is exciting, because that’s what the fans expect. There`s no problem in fighting here, as I know there will be a lot of Polish fans here who will support me.”
