Saturday night it was the WBA interim super featherweight championship live from the Dignity Health Sports Park, in Carson, California on the ShowTime network.
In the main event it was Chris “Primetime” Colbert defending his interim title against challenger Tugstsogt “King Tug” Nyambayar.
Before the bout, at the final presser, both fighters expressed confidence with the champion stating that, “Every time I fight, it’s always something.
‘He’s fighting a hard-hitter,’ but I’ve been putting stuff out, sleeping ’em. I’ve been knocking them out, beating them up bad, and they’re still not respecting me.
“I guess I gotta keep doing this on Saturday night and embarrass him. I know damn well he ain’t beating me and that’s a promise. He looks chubby, no way I’m losing to him. It’s impossible!”
Meanwhile challenger Nyambayar shot back with, “We are here to win. I’m ready for him. I’m gonna whoop your ass!”
In the end, it was unbeaten WBA interim super featherweight champion Chris “Primetime” Colbert who moved to 16-0 [6 KO’s] after banking a UD 12 over Tugstsogt “King Tug” Nyambayar [12-2, 9 KO’s]. Colbert’s speed was a factor and the natural size played a part as well as Nyambayarb was moving up from 126-pounds after taking the fight on 14 days notice.
The scores of 117-111, 118-110, 118-110 reflect the dominant performance by Colbert.
