Who has more chances to win, Mairis Briedis or Oleksandrs Usiks?
On January 27, 2018, the World Boxing Superseries fight between WBO titleholder Oleksandr Usik and WBC titleholder Mairi Briedi will take place in Arena Riga. According to bookmakers, Ukrainian Oleksandrs Usik is the favorite of this fight (Totalizator Optibet coefficient 1.30), so this will be a great opportunity for our boxer Mairis Briedis (Totalizator Optibet coefficient 4.90) to prove himself. The fight will take place not only for victory, but also for the award named after Muhammad Ali, the championship belts of the World Boxing Council (WBC), World Boxing Organization (WBO), International Boxing Federation (IBF) and World Boxing Association (WBA) and quite an impressive amount of money (The deer will receive almost one million Euros for this fight!)
This fight is equally important for both Bried and Usik, as well as for the fans of both, who already sympathize with the boxers and rush to buy tickets to see it with their own eyes. It is estimated that around 4,000 Ukrainians could watch the fight in person. In addition, the boxers will also be able to sympathize with the live broadcast, which will be shown by Viaplay.
Fan support, both in-person and online, plays a huge role in a boxing match, but it is difficult to predict the outcome of Briež vs. Usyk’s duel. As in the superseries, only the best of the best fight for the prize named after Muhammad Ali and the impressive amount of money.
It will not be easy for Mairis Briedis to prove his superiority over Oleksandr Usik, who is the champion in the WBO version and is often considered the best in the world, in this semi-final. However, 32-year-old Mairis Briedis is more experienced than Usik, which is of course to his advantage. Mairis has won all 23 professional fights during his career, knocking out his opponent in 18 cases. In the quarterfinals of the Superseries, which took place in September, he defeated Cuban Mike Perez on points to defend the World Boxing Council (WBC) championship belt.
On the other hand, 30-year-old Oleksandr Usyk has played about half as many professional fights – only 13, in which he has won all of them, 11 of them by knockout. He defeated the experienced Marko Huck from Germany by TKO in the first fight of the superseries, defending the World Boxing Organization (WBO) championship belt.
Mairis Briedis is very seriously preparing for the fight against Oleksandrs Usik, promising his fans a great show. The fact that an impressive show is in store is also evidenced by the ticket sales figures. At the boxing ring, where the price of tickets reaches 400 euros, there are almost no free seats left.
