Marcos Nader made history last night when the 23yo beat Roberto Santos on points to take the EU middleweight title and become his country’s first ever EU champion.

Nader beat Spaniard on points 116-112, 116-112 and 115-113. Nader now has 17 wins for 18 fights with only 1 draw against Santos in their last meeting in Novermber but the Austrian has now settled the score.

“I was off to a quick start and was in control, but had to get through some difficulties towards the end of the fight,” said Nader right after the bout. “I still haven’t realised what I have done and may need some time until I can believe it.”
