Both a Season 1 quarter- and semi-final, Mairis Briedis vs Mike Perez and Aleksandr Usyk vs Mairis Briedis, were held at the Arena Riga in front of ecstatic capacity crowds.

“WBSS is returning to Riga thanks to the fantastic fans in Latvia who have proven over and over again their love and passion for boxing,“ said Latvia’s Mairis Briedis, the 200lb tournament No 1. seed. “Latvia will be watched by the whole world and I will do everything I can to make my country proud and reach the final!”

“The fans in Riga are amazing,” said Krzysztof Glowacki. “I fought at the Arena Riga in 2017 on the undercard of the WBSS quarter-final Briedis vs Pe-rez and I remember a wonderful atmosphere. But ‘Glowka’ is coming for the win and Briedis should prepare for a war!”

“This sensational doubleheader is a hot ticket,” said Kalle Sauerland, Comosa’s Chief Boxing Officer. “And we are very excited to continue the tradition of bringing the Ali Trophy lights to this great and now established fight city. We truly make Riga into Las Vegas for one night.”

Mairis Briedis and Krzysztof Glowacki both defeated their hard fighting quarter-final opponents by unanimous decisions November 10 last year in Chicago. Briedis beat Germany’s Noel Mikaelian to claim a spot in the semi-final, while Glowacki took the win against Russia’s Maksim Vlasov.

Cuba’s Yunier Dorticos won a tough twelve round unanimous decision in Orlando over Germany’s Mateusz Masternak in his quarter-final. While USA’s Andrew Tabiti won a hard-fought decision on the road over Russia’s Ruslan Fayfer in Ekaterinburg to advance to the semi-finals. Now the ‘KO doctor’ and ‘The Beast’ are about to clash in the Latvian capital.

With the Judgement Day semi-finals taking place the same night the winners will go head-to-head after the battles have been settled!

Boxing fans in the U.S. and Canada can watch the Ali Trophy semi-finals LIVE, exclusively on DAZN.
