  1. What a fight. I scored it for Usyk for ring generalship and punch output, but it was close. Briedis did a lot of good work inside and countering, and you often couldn’t tell until the last punch of an exchange who’d got the better of it.

  2. Usyk can keep up that amateur points style for 12 rounds man insane. Who can beat him? Only someone that can knock him out or really hurt him to the body then quickly finish. Gassiev?

  3. I see it third time and usyk was very open to the left hook in addition to ucuts and bodyshots which briedis got inboth, but when it came between left hook and right cross he was looking for the latter more than the former, which was there in nearly every round. Had he sat down and put some mustard on one after feinting / hitting to the body many times to set a trap … who knows? Usyk has a chin tho and mairis not known for a strong left hook. Great fight WBSS rocks

  4. Usyk is gonna be a tough out for whoever wins between Gassiev or Dorticos. One of those guy is going to have to hurt him to the body or land hard punches to the head to stop Usyk if not they’re going to lose a decision for sure.

  5. Really good fight though the scores are off – one sided for Usyk.
    Scores are like a set up for a rematch. Though Briedes shouldn’t do it. Least not right away.
