Gambia’s Badou Jack over the weekend became a light-heavyweight champion, Foroyaa Sport can report.

Jack, 33, shrugged off competition from Welshman Nathan Cleverly in the fifth-round that left his adversary with a cut nose, in an undercard duel on the day MacGregor Conor lost to Mayweather Jr in almost weird meeting of two champions of varying division worth an eye-popping $350m.

Badou, whose fight was scheduled for 2:30 am, strolled over Cleverly in his first clash in the light-heavyweight after spending almost five years in the Super-middleweight category where he’s also a belt holder.

Nathan snatched the light-heavyweight belt from Juergen Braehmer last October consequently making Jack, a former Gambian Olympian, a Unified champion.
