Fight Card (subject to change)
• Chris Colbert (15-0) vs. Tugstsogt Nyambayar (12-1)
• Michel Rivera vs. Jon Fernandez
• Angel Alejandro vs. Rudy Ochoa
• Shon Mondragon vs. Jose Perez
Chris “Primetime” Colbert (15-0) is the interim WBA super featherweight champion, and while that title may mean very little Colbert is loaded with talent and promise. He has been active as a professional boxer for six years, and he has cruised through his first fifteen fights relatively unscathed. In January of 2020, he beat Jezreel Corrales to claim the vacant WBA interim title, and he’s defended that title successfully one time already. Now there are already six different super featherweight champions, with two more belts left vacant right now. Even as a WBA champion, he is third in line behind the Super champion, Gervonta “Tank” Davis, and the regular champion, Roger Gutierrez. Many belts may matter, but it’s hard to make a good case for this one being a big deal.
If Colbert can pull a victory, lots of opportunity lies ahead. Hopefully he’ll be able to be matched against one of the top former champs still active at this weight, like Jojo Diaz or Miguel Berchelt. Maybe with the right opponent he could fight for the vacant IBF belt, but it is not the most likely scenario. The politics of boxing can create a mess, but it can’t take the shine off this young talented fighter.
Tugstsogt “King Tug” Nyambayar (12-1) is the challenger in this fight but he wasn’t the first choice to face Colbert. Originally Yuriorkis Gamboa was scheduled to face Chris Colbert in this fight. While he was coming off of back to back losses to Davis and Devin Haney, Gamboa would have been a bigger name and better test for the interim champ.
Still Nyambayar is a former featherweight world champion, and only has one career loss to Gary Russell Jr. Nyambayar is ranked in the top ten of featherweights, but he hasn’t been really tested at this weight class or against any other opponents at this level. He’d love to shock the boxing world and pull an upset here, but keep your expectations for a surprise outcome really low.
