-A quick snapshot at the weekend before Fighters of the Week fleshes it out a bit more.
Biggest Upset: Humberto Soto (+500) over Brandon Rios
Notable New Champions:
- OneFC Women’s Kickboxing Atomweight Championship: Stamp Fairtex
- IBO World Super Middleweight Championship: Chris Eubank Jr.
- WBC World Super Middleweight Championship: Anthony Dirrell
A Few Storylines Going Forward:
-Finally Chris Eubank Jr. gets his signature win. Eubank wins his beloved IBO title and finally has a win over a recent world champ, taking a comfortable win over James DeGale at the O2.
-If Joe Joyce‘s career was Super Mario 3, he used a whistle to get from World 3 to World 6 and finished Bermaine Stiverne. What is next for the 6’6″ Olympic Silver Medalist?
-That’s four in a row and eight-of-nine for Thiago Santos. UFC’s Middleweight division is in desperate need of new blood and it’s time to move him to the Rockhold/Weidman/Romero/Souza tier.
