Yusaf Mack W KO 11 Maxy "Deep Freeze" Gawn
Super Middleweight King Pin Deep Freeze puts his title on the line against the young Undefeated Yusaf Mack. Deep Freeze, who was in the middle of the pound for pound lists was beating everyone he faced with relative boring ease, so no one thought much when he stepped into the ring with the very young and raw Mack. This fight turned into a nightmare relatively quickly for Deep Freeze as Mack when for it all in the first round! Mack hurt Deep Freeze in the first but Deep Freeze adjusted in the 2nd and was cruising his way through the fight as was usually the written script in a Deep Freeze fight, however in the 9th, Mack went for it again and hurt Deep Freeze and in the 10th dropped him. Mack, knowing he needed a knockout decided to go for broke and it paid it as he knocked out Deep Freeze with a devastating right hand in the 11th to win the World Super Middleweight Championship.
"Prince" Malik Abu-husson W KO 11 Wexley "Power" Gawn
In a rematch, Top Pound for Pound Fighter, the Undefeated Middleweight Champion Of The World Wexley put his title on the line again against Malik. In their first fight Wexley won a close MD. Most thought Wexley would win a much clearer decision, that was not in the plans as it seems. Malik went inside early on Wexley and knocked him out in the 11th round to win the World Super Middleweight Championship
CyruS "Touch oF SleeP" ViruS W UD 12 "The Easton Assassin" Larry Holmes
An underdog going into the fight, the #1 Pound for Pound Fighter in the World, the Undefeated 3 Division World Champion TOS came into the ring for his last fight ever and wanted to go out with a bang by challenging the Undefeated Heavyweight Champion Of The World. Some thought Larry Holmes would simply out boxed the much smaller man TOS to a very wide UD, however TOS who is a counterpunching master decided to switch up his style in the last fight of his career and went inside all night to the Champion and proceeded to beat up the undefeated heavyweight champion and dropped him twice in the final round to win the World Heavyweight

Championship with a UD.
Mike Taylor W UD 12 Roland Navarette

Althought Taylor was dropped in the last round, it was not enough for Navarette. Taylor won the
fight with a very close UD.
Oxy-Con-Mon W KO 1 Terrence "Ten Count" Tunney
The Former Light Heavyweight World Champion, Tunney was making a routine tuneup against a 4 foot 10 inch 139 lber who had only won 1 fight prior in what was to be a one sided disgraceful mismatch, however, that was not the case at all. Oxy-Con-Mon went on to blitz the former World Champion in the first round and knocked out Tunney.
