The pair met in a fight of the year contender in 2022 where Opetaia announced himself to the world with a minor upset over Briedis to win the IBF and Ring Magazine world titles.

Briedis hasn’t fought since whilst Opetaia stopped two Brits in 2023, Jordan Thompson in September in his UK debut and a highlight-reel opening-round knockout of Ellis Zorro in December.

In a WBC Final Eliminator, Germany’s Agit Kabayel goes up against fellow undefeated fighter, Cubas’ Frank Sanchez as both return to Riyadh following their knockout victories on the ‘Day of Reckoning’ card in December.

Kabayel (24-0, 16 KOs) pulled off a big upset stopping Arslanbek Makhmudov in just four rounds whilst Sanchez (24-0, 17 KOs) took out Junior Fa in the seventh.

Wales’ Joe Cordina (17-0, 9 KOs) is expected to defend his IBF super featherweight championship against Beflast’s Anthony Cacace (21-1, 7 KOs).

Former light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev (35-4-1, 29 KOs) will meet undefeated Swede Robin Safar (16-1, 12 KOs) in a cruiserweight bout.
