Boxing Challenge-YouTube Style
However,if you go to the effort,I have a feeling that it might be worth the time as the vacant WBC cruiserweight title is on the table as hard punching Latvian Mairis Briedis faces off against former WBO champion Marco Huck,who defended that belt 13 times before losing in a terrific fight to Krzystof Glowacki in eleven brutal rounds in August 2015.
Huck has won two fights since the loss to Glowacki,while Briedis has looked terrific against lower level competition,so this should be an exciting fight from Dortmund,Germany.
The belt was vacated when Tony Bellew moved to heavyweight for his upset win over David Haye and Bellew's injuries kept him from returning to the division.
Bellew was named "Champion Emeritus",which means if he ever wants a shot at this title,he moves straight to the front of the line.
The cruiserweight division suddenly looks very strong at the top with the winner of this fight being either a long time standard of the division or an undefeated puncher as WBC champ and two exciting undefeated champs in IBF titlist Murat Gassiev and WBO champ Olesander Usyk as well.
If the fights can be made,there are quite a few top notch bouts that can be made in the often moribund cruiserweight division.
