Fighters of the Week



Fighters of the Week  1. George Kambosos Jr.: Shocked absolutely everyone except for himself, did what he’s been saying he was going to do and absolutely outclassed Teofimo Lopez to win three lightweight championships. Devin Haney, owner of the fourth, fights next weekend, and Kambosos says he’s going to be there, so hopefully The Winter of Unification continues!

Fighters of the Week  2. Stephen Fulton: Is now the WBC and WBO champion at 122lbs, and has a claim to be the king of the hill at it. He and Brandon Figueroa put on an absolute classic in their title vs. title clash with Fulton squeaking out a majority decision.

Fighters of the Week  3. Kenichi Ogawa: From fill-in to world champion, as Ogawa put Azinga Fuzile on his wallet three times en route to claiming the vacant IBF Junior Lightweight championship that Joseph Diaz lost on the scale.

Fighters of the Week  4. Erika Cruz Hernandez: In Puerto Vallarta on Friday, Hernandez escaped by split-decision over Melissa Esquivel to retain her WBA featherweight title.

Fighters of the Week  t5. Micaela Milagros Lujan: Tied here because they’re all IBF world champions, and they all defended their titles in Argentina on Friday by unanimous decision.

8. Jack Massey: The new IBO World champion at Cruiserweight after making short work of Bilal Laggoune in the main event in Bolton. Cruiserweight desperately needs fresh blooed and Massey is a hell of a fighter.

9. Nathaniel Collins: Retained his Commonwealth featherweight title with a ninth-round knockout of Thembani Mbangatha.

10. Ra’eese Aleem: In the co-main of Showtime’s Figueroa-Fulton title vs. title card, Aleem won the NABO title at 122lbs and could be Fulton’s next challenger for his WBO strap.
