“I’m training once a day now, I’m keeping myself in shape for the time being,” Briedis said on TV3 for 900 seconds. “It will be known soon when there will be the next fight and in what weight category. I am very much looking forward to it.”
So far, Briedis has fought in the first heavyweight category (up to 90.7 kg).
This week, Briedis received the Riga City Council award “Rigans of the Year” for outstanding success in high-level boxing competitions and promotion of Riga in the world.
At the end of September in Munich, in the final of the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS), Briedis won the Cuban Juniel Dortikos and won the Mohammed Ali trophy, the International Boxing Federation (IBF) champion belt in the first heavyweight and The Ring belt.
After this fight, Briedis allowed the idea to move to the heavyweight division. His coach Dmitry Shiholay previously in a conversation with TVNET pointed outthat the possibility to move to the heavyweight division is real, but it will depend on the decision of the promoter and the boxer himself.
Recently Briedi to fight challenged British boxer Tommy McCarthy, who recently won a European Boxing Union (EBU) belt.
35-year-old Briedis has won 27 victories during his career and once tasted the bitterness of loss.
