Who is Artur Mann?

Artur Mann (17-1) will face the toughest test of his career as he goes in search of a maiden world title.

Prediction:

Mairis Briedis will defend his IBF world cruiserweight and will be extremely confident of doing so as he takes on Artur Mann. This will be a huge step up in class for the German and his lack of fights against quality opponents is likely to prove to be his downfall here. Briedis is an excellent operator and has managed to overcome some impressive opponents during his career. His power is likely to be crucial here and having achieved 19 KOs from his 27 career wins, another early stoppage is on the cards here.
