The “Mongolian Warrior” Wins World Title Eliminator

Mongolian 2012 Olympic Silver-Medalist ‘King Tug’ Tugstsogt Nyambayar (11-0-0, 9KO) opened up the FOX PBC show with a quality performance, outpointing contender Claudio Marrero (23-3-0, 17KO) to a unanimous decision, winning the secondary IBO Featherweight title.

As for major title implications, this was a title eliminator for the WBC world Featherweight title, which is the belt that American Gary Russell Jr. holds, so Nyambayar has put himself in a solid position for a potential shot at the big time.
