Tugstsogt Nyambayar Gets Off The Floor, Decisions Dela Torre

By Ryan Burton

Cosmopolitan Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas - In a battle of undefeated featherweight prospects, Olympic silver medal winner Tugstsogt Nyambayar (9-0, 8 KOs) went the distance for the first time in his career, and survived a knockdown, in winning an eight round unanimous decision over tough as nails Harmonito Dela Torre (19-1, 12 KOs). The scores were 79-73, 78-73, 78-73.

The contest started in a close and tactical manner, with both having some success. Nyambayar was landing the more solid punches and seemed to have the edge with the more accurate punches.

Dela Torre applied the pressure in the second and was getting caught by hard shots, but near the end of the round he landed a cracking hook that dropped Nyambayar down hard. King Tug made it up to his feet as the bell sounded to close the round out.


Dela Torre came out swinging in the third and looking to do more damage.  Nyambayar was looking to dig to the body. During an exchange it was Nyambayar who shook up Dela Torre with a hard combination.

The hard punches were raining down from both in the fourth. Nyambayar was landing the flashier punches. In the fifth, a cut opened up above Dela Torre's right eye. Nyambayar continued to land the better punches. They traded hard right hands near the end of the round.

Nyambayar was landing solid shots to the head and body at the start of the sixth and continued to outland Dela Torre for most of the round.

A big shot connected to Dela Torre's chin in the seventh and really shook him up. Dela Torre's mouthpiece went flying and that created a break to help him recover.

Nyambayar once again rocked Dela Torre and had him in serious trouble in the eight and final round. Dela Torre managed to stay up on his feet and survived until the last bell.

Call this the sleeper matchup of the year because almost no one knew that we would get a solid unbeaten contender against an unbeaten prospect, especially against a guy equal or better than Shakur Stevenson since Nyambar fought Robyeisy Ramirez…
