In the co-main event, a 12-round WBC Featherweight Title Eliminator, Mongolian Olympic silver-medalist N.Tugstsogt (12-1, 9 KOs) rode two early knockdowns to win a highly competitive split-decision over Barbadian Cobia Breedy (15-1, 5 KOs), setting up a possible rematch with WBC Featherweight World Champion Gary Russell Jr.
Two judges scored the fight 114-112 and 114-113 for “King Tug,” with Don Trella somehow having it 115-111 for Breedy. Despite the one bogus card, it was a bounce back win for King Tug, who came up short against Gary Russell Jr. his last time in the ring.
N.Tugstsogt landed 190 of 580 total punches (33%), to 166 of 742 (22%) for Breedy. Both men landed exactly 51 jabs, with King Tug having the edge in power punching.
With this win, N.Tugstsogt moves forward, but the jury remains on his standing in the featherweight division. Breedy, now 15-1 (5 KOs) suffered the first loss of his career, but raised his stock with his brave showing.
