Oleksandr Usyk vs. Anthony Joshua
Oleksandr Usyk scored a clear and pretty decisive win over Anthony Joshua today in London, taking the super WBA, IBF, and WBO heavyweight titles on the road, and joining a very short list of fighters who have won real world titles at both cruiserweight and heavyweight.
Lawrence Okolie vs. Dilan Prasovic
Lawrence Okolie made predictably easy work of Dilan Prasovic in the first defense of his WBO cruiserweight title on the Joshua-Usyk undercard. Prasovic was the mandatory challenger and unbeaten, but nothing on his record suggested he was a threat to the impressive Okolie, who knocked him out in the third round.
Masamichi Yabuki vs. Kenshiro Teraji
In the city of Kyoto, Japan, one of the biggest surprises of the year was raised because after 4 and a half years of reigning in the light fly division, Kenshiro Teraji, was defeated by his compatriot, Masamichi Yabuki via TKO in the tenth round. Yabuki became a new WBC light fly champion.
Junto Nakatani vs. Angel Acosta
Defending WBO flyweight champion Junto Nakatani successfully made his American debut in defense of his title against former WBO light fly champ Angel Acosta at Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona.
Oscar Valdez vs. Robson Conceicao
