Tugstsogh Nyambaya Makes Chris Colbert Remorsefully Thankful
July 2, 2021
Chris Colbert and Tugstsogt Nyambayar brought up a point of view, many boxing fans failed to see ahead of their WBA Interim junior Lightweight title fight taking place this Saturday, 4th July, at the Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California.
Colbert (15-0, 6KOs) was more particular about the fact that he has a belt and Nyambaya is lucky or privileged to be fighting for it as he wasn’t the original opponent for the event. Nyambayar (12-1, 9KOs) made the brash interim champion immediately thankful for his short notice acceptance.
“Just think, if I didn’t take this fight this weekend, you wouldn’t have a fight,” Nyambayar pointed out to Colbert of his willingness to replace an injured Yuriorkis Gamboa on just two weeks’ notice. “Be thankful I took this fight, bro.”
The fight was initially scheduled to be between Chris Colbert and Former world champion Yuriorkis Gamboa but the later, pulled out of the fight due to a rib injury mid June. Nyambaya immediately jumped on the opportunity, moved up in weight to accept the challenge, making the search of a new opportunity brief.
“Covid just happened. A lot of people’s bills is due, light bills and shit like that,” Colbert stated. “They need money. People need money because they haven’t fought in a long time.
“I understand why he took the fight. I’m thankful, though. I appreciate that you took the fight. I gotta get in that ass.”
Colbert will be making the second defence of his WBA Interim junior Lightweight title against Nyambaya, a 2012 Silver Medalist and former title challenger. Colbert has been able to dominate most of his opponent in the ring and most recently the eleventh round stoppage victory over Jaime Arboleda last November. Nyambaya is promising Colbert a different experience.
“Let’s see, bro,” Nyambayar noted of Colbert’s guarantee of how things will play out on Saturday, before offering one of his own. “I’m gonna whoop your ass.”
