Jai Opetaia v Mairis Briedis
The IBF has declared that Cruiserweight champion Mairis Briedis must defend his world title against Australian Jai Opetaia!
Join us in the Onyx Lounge on Saturday July 2 from 7pm for one of the best fights Australia will ever see LIVE and LOUD on one of the biggest screens in Canberra.
Opetaia already has an impressive resumé including light heavy junior World Title (2011) and youngest boxer in Australian boxing history to qualify for the Olympic games (2012). With a perfect professional boxing record of 21 wins from 21 fights, Opetaia now has his shot to become a world champion. Standing in his way is one massive hurdle: world champion Mairis Briedis! Hailing from Latvia, Briedis is the number one ranked Cruiserweight in the world and three-time world champion. Will Opetaia fulfil his potential, or will Briedis continue his reign as world champion?
