Today at 5:00 pm ET, Mairis Briedis meets Mike Perez in the third of four quarterfinal bouts in the World Boxing Super Series cruiserweight tournament.
The fight can be seen streaming live on WorldBoxingSuperSeries.com, plus airing on Audience in the United States, ITV Box Office (for free) in the United Kingdom, and Super Channel in Canada. Prelim bouts will begin at 2:00 pm ET.
Briedis (22-0, 18 KO) is the WBC champion and the favorite in the fight, and will have home field advantage in Riga, Latvia. He last fought on April 1, beating Marco Huck in Germany to win the vacant WBC belt.
Perez (22-2-1, 14 KO) is a former heavyweight from Cuba, looking to get his career on track in the cruiserweight division. He’s only fought once at the weight, winning a 29-second knockout earlier this year in Belfast. That followed two years out of the ring after a loss to Alexander Povetkin.
