To feed to demand for promote up and coming amateur fighters on the rise, we at Wombat Sports have created the “Amateur Hot List”; fighters who have solid records and are “buzzworthy”.
The fighter must have fought in the last three months and won at least twice in a row to be mentioned.
Here is the scale:
- Atomic: On the verge of being pro
- Blazing: Undefeated or only one loss and on a roll
- On Fire:: Several wins and a social buzz
- Hot: Just won a fight and is being talked about
