Main Card (DAZN, ~4:00 pm ET)

Yunier Dorticos (23-1, 21 KO) vs Andrew Tabiti (17-0, 13 KO), cruiserweights, 12 rounds
Dorticos (23-1, 21 KOs), from Cuba, won a tough 12-round unanimous decision over Mateusz Masternak in his quarterfinal. The KO artist has the chance of redeeming himself after last year's semifinal defeat against Murat Gassiev and reach the final for the Muhammad Ali Trophy in the cruiserweight edition of the WBSS.
"It was an amazing experience that taught me a whole lot," Dorticos said in a WBSS press release. "Gassiev was a totally different fighter than what Tabiti is. The experience I gained in last year's semifinal will definitely make the difference in the Season 2 semifinal this time around."
Dorticos went on to add, "I respect any man who gets in a ring, but Tabiti is in my way to the final and I will eliminate him at all cost. The fans in Riga can expect a show. I'm a prize fighter, and I'm going to make sure they get their money's worth and more. When 'The KO Doctor' goes in that ring it will be nothing but fireworks and excitement. I don't come to run, I come to fight!"
