Chris Colbert will make the second defense of his WBA Interim Super Featherweight title this Saturday against tough challenger Tugstsogt Nyambayar at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.

The American is one of the flashier fighters today, although his popularity is still on the rise. The Brooklyn native is just 24 years old and has a great boxing style, with good movement, excellent defense and a high punch volume that makes all his fights interesting.

“Prime Time” won the belt on January 18th, 2020 with a wide unanimous decision win over Panama’s Jezreel Corrales. In December he returned to the ring to make his first defense and resolved it with a technical knockout in 11 rounds against the also Panamanian Jaime Arboleda in a demonstration of dominance.

Now he will have Mongolian Nyambayar in front of him. He accepted the fight a few weeks apart but comes with a great record and is a dangerous challenger for the champion. He is 29 years old and has defeated opponents such as Oscar Escandón and Claudio Marrero.

The weigh-in ceremony will take place on Friday, where they must weigh 130 pounds to be qualified for the fight. On Saturday they will step into the ring to fight for the belt.

Colbert has 15 wins, is undefeated and has knocked out 6 opponents, while Nyambayar has 12 wins, 1 loss, and 9 knockouts.
