Mairis Briedis And Yuniel Dorticos Quietly Puts On A Show On A Night Filled With Boxing

Under normal circumstances, Mairis Briedis and Yuniel Dorticos would receive all of the attention in the world. But with both Jermell and Jermall Charlo headlining an unprecedented Pay-Per-View doubleheader, most of the boxing eyeballs were going to be fixated on them. Still, halfway across the world in Germany, Dorticos and Briedis were holding center stage in the World Boxing Super Series (WBSS) final. After coming up short in 2018, both Dorticos and Briedis shared something in common. They did want to come in second place again. Things started off somewhat unexpectedly during the early portions of the fight. “The KO Doctor,” in Dorticos, found himself pushed back as Briedis came out looking to end things early. After weathering the storm however, Dorticos began landing his own big shots. Briedis, to his credit, kept his composure and simply outboxed Dorticos when things got heated on the inside. Throughout most of his career, Dorticos has always found a way to either hurt or stop his opponents. Breidis though, kept his hands up high and kept out of range of anything significant that Dorticos threw his way. There have always been question marks surrounding the gas tank of Dorticos. And during the biggest moment of his career, those same questions came back to haunt him. The KO Doctor had absolutely nothing left during the championship rounds. Ironically enough, Breidis was as fresh as could be. With the punch output of Dorticos coming few and far between, Breidis made the final few rounds look easy. The win for the Latvian native seemed obvious, but in the world of boxing, nothing is guaranteed. Breidis did find himself as the winner at the end of the night, but with one judge scoring things 114-114, the following two scorecards became interesting. Luckily for Breidis, he wasn't denied on the night as the final two judges had it 117-111 in his favor, handing Breidis the WBSS Final victory he was looking for.

Charlo Brother’s Pay Per View Results: Nery Decisions Alameda

By: Sean Crose The vacant WBC super bantamweight title was on the line Saturday night when the 30-0 Luis Nery battled the 25-0 Aaron Alameda at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena in a pay per view bout aired by Showtime. Nery was the more fluid fighter in the first. Nery began putting punches together at the end of the second. Alameda showed in the third that he wasn't afraid or unable to mix it up. By the fourth it became impressive how well Alameda was able to employ a strong defense from the center of the ring. The fifth round was something of a chess match. Nery fought well in the sixth. He may not have been able to consistently work on his man, but Nery certainly wasn't having a bad night. Nery was more in control on the seventh. The eighth was a fast paced affair where Nery appeared to be the more active of the two fighters. The ninth was fast paced, as well, but neither man's shots were impacting the other much. By the tenth, it looked as if Nery was simply the stronger man in the ring. Alameda, however, was landing effectively. The championship rounds were like much of the rest of the bout - high energy but lacking in defining moments. It was almost as if fans were watching two extremely skilled amateurs giving it their all. Ultimately, the judges ruled it 116-112, 118-110, and 115-113 for Nery.
