Bruce Carrington

Bruce “Shu Shu” Carrington (10-0, 6 KOs) has enjoyed an impressive start to his professional career and is well-regarded at Top Rank, as proven by his spot on the undercard of Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder III. “Shu Shu” is very confident, picks his punches, fights well on the inside and carries impressive power. He stopped the durable and well-tested Jason Sanchez in round two on December 9, 2023. 

Hayato Tsutsumi

Hayato Tsutsumi (4-0, 1 KO) has enjoyed a great start to his professional career, with the most recent stoppage win over Luis Moncion Venturashowing his class. Tsutsumi systematically took his Dominican opponent apart, flooring him twice before referee Biney Martin waved the fight off at the 2:14 mark. The promising 24-year-old looks primed for a brilliant 2024.

Otabek Kholmatov

Otabek Kholmatov (12-0, 11 KOs) is a KO specialist who has destroyed 11 fighters, with only Andranik Grigorian seeing the final bell. The heavy-handed Uzbek fighter has destroyed many opponents – and became the first person to beat Thomas Patrick Ward, forcing the Irishman’s corner to throw in the towel during round 5. His power combinations and accuracy have earned him a world title shot for the vacant WBA featherweight title against Raymond Ford on March 2.

Otar Eranosyan

Otar Eranosyan (14-0, 7 KOs) has enjoyed a productive 2023 at super featherweight, winning both bouts, the first by unanimous decision against Edy Valencia Mercado. He most recently stopped Roger Gutierrez in the eighth round. Eranosyan controls the distance well during his fights, engaging when needed. He is adept at switching between the head and body, making him a nightmare to defend against. He throws accurate punches with visible intent in every shot.

Karriss Artingstall

Karriss Artingstall (5-0, 1 KO) most recently defeated Vanessa Bradford, continuing her unbeaten professional record. The 29-year-old Macclesfield fighter established her Southpaw jab, flooring her opponent in the first round. Artingstall was dominant and walked through her opponent’s punches, landing more telling blows herself. The precision of the Southpaw fighter was most impressive, as Bradford couldn’t deal with her accuracy or power. A big 2024 beckons for the 29-year-old.
