Saturday, June 15, 2019
What: Mairis Briedis (25-1, 18 KOs) vs Krzysztof Glowacki (31-1, 19 KOs)
Where: Arena Riga in Riga, Latvia
Time: 2 pm ET
Odds: Briedis -230, Glowacki +175
Synopsis: Season Two of the World Boxing Super Series continues in Riga for the semi-finals of the cruiserweight tournament to determine who the new king of the mountain is after undefeated and undisputed champion Oleksandr Usyk relinquished his titles to move up to heavyweight. Briedis-Glowacki will crown the new WBO and WBA champs at 200 pounds.
Other Bouts: The other semi-final matchup on the card is Yunier Dorticos vs Andrew Tabiti. Dorticos, 33, from Cuba, suffered his only loss as a pro by 12th round knockout to Murat Gassiev during the Season One WBSS tournament. Tabiti, 29, from Las Vegas, hopes to continue his rise to the top of the sport with what would be the best win of his career.
What: Josh Warrington (28-0, 6 KOs; pictured below) vs Kid Galahad (26-0, 15 KOs)
Where: First Direct Arena in Leeds, England
Time: 3 pm ET
Odds: Warrington -305, Galahad +235
Synopsis: Warrington, 28, from Leeds, England, gets the home game against Galahad, 29, an undefeated fighter born in Qatar who now lives in England. It’s Warrington’s second defense of the IBF featherweight title he lifted from Lee Selby and defended against Carl Frampton. Another win vaults Warrington to elite status among featherweights and could lead to a showdown against Leo Santa Cruz in the United States.
Other Bouts: Other bouts include JJ Metcalf vs Jason Welborn for the Commonwealth 154-pound title and Zelfa Barrett vs Lyon Woodstock for the Commonwealth 130-pound title.
What: Tyson Fury (27-0-1, 19 KOs) vs Tom Schwarz (24-0, 16 KOs)
Where: MGM Grand Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada
Time: 10 pm ET
Odds: Fury -2500, Schwarz +1100
Synopsis: It’s Fury’s return to the ring after essentially rising from the dead in the twelfth round against Deontay Wilder to secure the draw in their December 2018 superfight. Fans were hyped for a rematch, but Fury signed a lucrative deal with ESPN instead, so now the fighter some consider the lineal heavyweight champion begins collecting the huge amounts of money he probably already deserved. Schwarz is a regional level talent, so Fury should have no trouble dispatching him.
Other Bouts: Former super middleweight title challenger Jesse Hart moves up to 175 to face longtime contender Sullivan Barrera is what should be a pretty good scrap between evenly matched opponents. Others in action include Mikaela Mayer, Top Rank’s favorite female fighter, and Andy Vences.
