IBF / The Ring champion in the first heavyweight (up to 90.7 kg) and winner of the 2nd season of the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS), Latvian Mairis Briedis commented on the performance of Briton Lawrence Okoli (16-0-0, 13 KO), who knocked out last weekend his former rival, Pole Krzysztof Glovacki (31-3-0, 19 KO).
“Lawrence has shown serious boxing in the last two fights and deservedly won the title. And if his team can make an interesting offer, then I will stay in the first heavyweight for one more fight. Hearn has Kalle Sauerland’s number.
I can’t say what it was – Okoli’s merit or Glovacki’s miscalculation. However, I never saw him bring any discomfort to Okoli. I didn’t understand their game plan. Congratulations to Lawrence on winning his first championship fight, ”said Briedis.
