“I can’t wait for tomorrow night it’s going to be fireworks!” said Dorticos.

“Tomorrow I will pick up where Muhammad Ali left 44 years ago when he produced his last KO of his career here in Munich. I will pick up where his footsteps left meaning I will carry on with his legacy.”

briedis looks to be in very good shape

Comment by Timur78 on 09-25-2020

Breidis is a tough guy and smart but his style is anti-boxing. It's tough to watch. He just tries to grind the other guy down. Even Usyk had a hard time dialing down on him to win cleanly. Very bad…
