Before we get on to the unbeaten men we'll start with the most significant fight in the division. This was a title bout in the US which saw Jason Bergman (23-10-2, 16) successfully defend his USA NABA with a stoppage over the returning Devin Vargas (18-3, 7) . Vargas, who hadn't fought in 2 and a half years, lasted just 3 rounds and it seemed clear that his career is as good as over as a result of this loss.
On a separate US show fans got to see Jesse Barboza (8-1-1, 5) take a 4 round decision over novice Glenn Thomas (1-2) who looks highly unlikely to ever do much of note we're afraid.
Staying in the US for a moment longer, they had the unbeaten powerhouse Aaron Green (15-0, 13) manage to stop the experienced Byron Polley (25-17-1, 11). Polley, who isn't a great test, managed to survive to round 7 of a scheduled 8 rounder though thus did mean that Green was able to reach a milestone, it was the first time the unbeaten man was forced beyond 6 rounds in his career so far.
In Canada the previously unbeaten Zachary Bunce (2-1, 1) was surprisingly upset by Steven Harvey (5-1, 2) who managed to take a narrow decision over over the previously unbeaten man.
A third unbeaten fighter in action was the highly touted German Tom Schwarz (5-0, 3) who took just 138 seconds to take out the limited Frantisek Kynkal (3-4, 3). Schwarz, at just 19 years old, is a Heavyweight baby but some are viewing him as a potential champion in the making and so far so good from the youngster.
On the same show in Germany the big punching Steffen Kretschmann (17-2-0-1, 15) was taken the distance for just the second time in his 20 fight career. Fighting against the teak tough Samir Kurtagic (12-6, 8) fans got to see Kretschmann dragged in to a tough one which saw Kurtagic really running Kretschmann close. Although he'll not be a world beater we do think that Kurtagic could well become one of those really top class European journeymen, as long as he doesn't lose his desire to win. If he does that he'd make a great opponent for some of the emerging youngsters coming through
