Mairis Briedis – first Latvian WBC champion

This night Mairis Briedis, Latvian boxer, proved that a person from a small nation also can do big things, if he’s not afraid to prove himself and face the opponent.

Mairis Briedis won the WBC world champion title, boxing against Marco Huck.

“Latvia, after all, we are a strong country.” Those were the first words of M. Briedis.

The WBC is one of the four major governing bodies in professional boxing, and certifies world champions in 17 different weight classes.
