Figueroa Over Powers Luis Nery in 7th round to become Unified Junior Featherweight Champion
Brandon Figueroa crushes Luis Nery via seventh-round ko to become the unified junior featherweight champion. Figueroa finished Nery with a left hook to end the fight with a knockout and claim the WBC Title, which he adds to his WBA title. Figueroa was behind earlier in the fight due to Nery’s constant pressure, but came alive in the seventh round and poured it on when the fatigued Nery couldn’t take any more punishment, and he was counted out.
Up Next, Figueroa will now face WBO junior featherweight champion Stephen Fulton Jr. on September 11 for a shot to grab another piece of the crown.
