WITH its bantam and super-lightweight finalists decided, the World Boxing Super Series holds its cruiserweight semis on Saturday (June 15) at the Riga Arena in Latvia’s capital.

And a tournament that has already delivered quality entertainment looks set to continue that trend, if one can rely on the participants’ records: the cruiser final four combine for an impressive 96 wins and just three defeats (one each for three of the quartet).

Home interest centres on Mairis Briedis against Polish southpaw Krzysztof Glowacki, but the other semi also holds plenty of intrigue, pitting Cuban banger Yunier Dorticos against unbeaten American Andrew Tabiti.
