Earlier today in China fight fans had the chance to see local fighter Peng Qu (14-2-1, 10) defeat Ugandan veteran Joey Vegas (21-17-3, 14) and become the new holder of the OPBF Silver Cruiserweight title.
The fight started with Peng coming forward, looking to use his reach and height advantage to box aggressively behind his jab. Vegas didn't really take much punishment but broke away from the action momentarily to complain about something. Only moments later the action resumed and Vegas went down, clutching his knee. The bout would be stopped soon afterwards, with Qu taking a disappointing TKO win over the Ugandan veteran.
Despite the title win it's fair to say that no one was happy with the bout ending like this. Vegas was in agony receiving medical medical treatment whilst Peng was awarded the title in what will go down as one of the more forgettable bouts this year.
Tomorrow fight fans in China will get the chance to see local hopeful Peng Qu (13-2-1, 9) take on Ugandan veteran Joey Vegas (21-16-3, 14) in a bout for the OPBF Silver Cruiserweight title.
The bout, which is part of a 2 day event for Major League Boxing in China, had it's weigh in earlier today and saw both men make weight.
On the scales Peng was 200lbs, dead on the Cruiserweight limit, and he looked big, strong and powerful.
Vegas, who has fought as low as Super Middleweight during his 14 year career, was 198lbs, one of the heaviest weights of his career.
