Honchak Edges Porto for Invicta Flyweight Title
MFS has a new champion in its storied history as Barb Honchak edged Vanessa Porto in an extremely close fight. Honchak would launch multiple boxing combinations early and often that allowed her to dictate the pace. Porto chose more to counter and land heavy leg kicks that chopped away at Honchak.
In the final frame, Honchak would get taken down off a caught kick. While it seemed like Porto would look to seize an advantage, Porto elected to let her up instead. In the end, it was Honchak’s volume and control that netted her the title.
