The Latvian Punisher is a cruiserweight boxer who was born on the 13th of January 1985 in Riga, Latvia. The first Latvian to hold a professional boxing title, this man’s career started with kickboxing when he was a little kid. The rush he got from combat sports was incomparable to anything else. He even represented his country and won the Gold medal at the 2008 WAKO European Championships held in Varna. Whilst everyone thought that he was going to become a top kickboxer, this Latvian announced that he would focus on boxing from then on.

He became a pro the very next year and began dominating his opponents. His first big win was against Manuel Charr in 2015. By then, this Latvian had already moved up in weight. A three-time cruiserweight world champion, this Latvian pro kept doing what he was good at and was undefeated until Oleksandr Usyk won against him on the 27th of January 2018. Whilst this was disheartening, the man kept doing what he does best, and that is to give his all in the ring. He has suffered another loss, this time against Jai Opetaia, in his career. The tide may be turning against him, but this fighter still has at least one fight left in him. He’d want to end his career on a high, wouldn’t he?
