However, Mortensen conceded Briggs is unlikely to risk his unbeaten record. The boys are good friends after attending wrestling camp together over the summer.
``I'm pretty confident I could beat him,'' Mortensen said.
Mortensen, who won 37 matches last season, said he's more aggressive this season.
