In the last match of the World Boxing Super Series season two cruiserweight quarterfinals, Mairis Briedis takes on Noel Mikaelian on Nov.10 at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, live and exclusively on DAZN.
Briedis is no stranger to the WBSS, having competed in the cruiserweight division during season one and is ranked as the No. 1 seed in this year’s installment of the tournmanet. Briedis lost to eventual winner, Oleksandr Usyk, in the semifinal last year, but got back to his winning ways against Brandon Deslaurier via a unanimous decision in July.

His opponent, Mikaelian, won the WBO International Cruiserweight title in October 2016 and has since fought twice, losing to Krzysztof Wlodarczyk via split decision in May 2017 and defeating Isiah Thomas via unanimous decision in September 2017.
“We have an amazing lineup with eight worthy challengers that rival last season’s sensational quality,” said promoter Kalle Sauerland, the chief boxing officer for tournament owner Comosa AG. “Cruiserweight is one of the most exciting divisions. Just look at last season’s unbelievable matchups. So, we are looking forward to a new season.”
No Cruiserweight belts are on the line during the quarterfinals, as Usyk currently holds the IBF, WBA, WBC and WBO titles and faces Tony Bellew on the same night.
