Last Saturday we saw Julius Indongo upset the apple cart massively when he knocked out Eduard Troyanovsky within the first minute of round one to take his IBF Super Lightweight Title and also take his first professional defeat.
Troyanovsky came into this fight a huge favourite and Indongo coming over from Namibia to knock him unconscious was certainly not part of anyone’s accumulator. Indongo is 33 years old and now become every fighters dream, a world champion. The division he has conquered is one of exciting fights to be made in the future.
It’s always good to see a big underdog come over and do the business on the home fighters soil and this certainly did make for an interesting watch! The WBA champion in this division is Ricky Burns, and Terence Crawford is the unified WBC,WBO, Ring and Lineal champion.
