Mark Magsayo and Freddie Roach did it. He defeated Gary Russell, Jr. and took the WBC world championship. Congrats to him. Here’s to a long and successful title reign. I wonder if there will be a rematch eventually. Apparently, Russell was injured before or during the fight. However, if I were Magsayo, I’d look forward to the future.
The other fight discussed was the Matias fight. This was a brutal fight, which was to be expected. Ananyan seems to have decided to exclusively fight on the inside which is a difficult way to go. Matias seemed to have improved on managing distance to unleash his power punches by not allowing Ananyan to smother him.
