    No poll thread yet, somehow? :dunno

    They are coming off victories over Norair Mikaelian (aka Noel Gevor) and Maksim "The Kill" Vlasov respectively in the quarterfinals of the second installment of the WBSS cruiserweight tourney. Briedis participated in the first installment, and was eliminated by eventual champion Oleksandr Usyk in the semis. Głowacki did not participate, as he was rebuilding his career momentum after his own loss to Usyk a year before the original tourney started.

    Now that Usyk has moved up, this could well be the defining match-up to determine the CW division's new de facto king. I don't really care who emerges from the other side of the bracket in the WBSS finals - I'd confidently pick either Briedis or Głowacki to brutalize either Dorticos or Tabiti. :deal:

    Legitimately stoked for this - but just found out my family is having its summer get-together cookout at 3pm EST on that day...meaning I'm going to miss it. :BangHead:

    Brutal fight. I expect Glowacki to prevail because of his power and aggresivness. Briedis looks bit stiff around shoulders area that willl mean less head movement and less speed.

    Or just post up by the gazebo and stream it on my phone while scarfing down burgers? 10-4.

    Really hope Briedis is fully recovered from his injury problems and the situation with his trainer has been resolved because this is a great match up and one I'm really looking forward to.





    I think this video from the other day mentions something about his trainer but it's in Latvian. Maybe one of the Latvia people on here will kindly translate it for us? @Latviapeople

    Here is what he said:

    ''At the moment we learned that the date of the fight is being moved to June, we realized that all the work could be done here, because there is a very large amount of work to be done, Here you can run, accumulate physical form, everything else is at your fingerstips. Physiotherapy, massages, doctors - all that is needed to regenarate. The conditions to prepare for the fight are very good here. Here Mairis is able to rest. He was now able to start a camp with a clean, fresh head, without injuries and in full length in Latvia.''

    If Briedis has sorted out all his issues he should win a points decision. He really looked very ropey in his last fight though.

    Briedis at his best has a sharper jab, quicker feet, better shot selection and a slightly better ring iq. Glowacki has slightly heavier hands, but he can be a bit static and sloppy with that wide stance and tendency to swing wide with his shots. Like I said above, if Briedis is back to his best he should be able to potshot Glowacki at range and catch him with sharp, eye-catching combos. Glowacki's danger comes if Briedis takes his eye off the ball and plays into Glowacki's off-rhythm brawling style, where he could leave himself open to one of those big looping shots that Glowacki throws so well in the heat of combat.

    I wouldn't make too much out of his poor showing against Gevor, its already been stated that he was injured, then combine that with the fact that, Gevor's style isn't the easiest style to look good against, or flat out beat for someone who tends to prefer being the counter puncher himself, the decision loss Gevor has against Diablo Wlodarczyk was a crock, he got robbed blind there, so an argument could be made that Gevor is undefeated, because at best Briedis maybe drew with him. But... that match has zero to do with Glowacki, who fights nothing like Gevor. Glowacki will be coming forward all night, allowing Briedis to do what he does best, counter punch, and counter punch his ears off. It wouldn't shock me in the least if Briedis scores a spectacular Charr like KO victory over him in fact.
