IBF Cruiserweight Champion Mairis Briedis of Latvia puts his belt on the line against unbeaten Jai Opetaia of Australia at the Gold Coast Convention Centre in Queensland Australia this Saturday, July 2nd. Briedis (28-1, 20 KOs) is arguably the number one man in the division, and there could well be a unification fight on the horizon, with WBO boss Lawrence Okolie keen on a meeting, but first, the 37-year-old must get past the mandatory challenge of Opetaia (21-0, 17 KOs), with the fight broadcast on FOXTEL pay-per-view in Australia and on FITE TV in both the UK and USA.
Briedis first became world champion in April 2017, capturing the vacant WBC crown with a clear points win over Marco Huck, and he defended five months later by outscoring Mike Perez.
His sole professional defeat came in the semi-final of the World Boxing Super Series, but he pushed Oleksandr Usyk to the wire, losing by just two points on two cards in a majority verdict loss.

Mairis Briedis vs Jai Opetaia Predictions
Mairis Briedis has fought a who’s who at cruiserweight and his only loss came to Oleksandr Usyk. sky, of course, has gone on to become an undisputed world cruiserweight champion before stepping up to heavyweight to dethrone Anthony Joshua. Therefore it is no surprise to see Briedis being made the odds-on favorite for this fight.
Briedis isn’t the quickest cruiserweight out there but he has a lot of experience to go with his skills and power. He also owns a sturdy chin. He’s not naturally aggressive either and often looks pedestrian in the ring but Opetaia has been boxing domestic-level opponents up to now and is stepping up in class.
It might not be the most entertaining fight unless Opetaia lets his hands go and forces Briedis to answer back.
