Rutkowski belted again

Reigning world champ wins $75,000 defending title at Las Vegas Championship

 

LAS VEGAS – The belt still fits Weston Rutkowski.

 

The Haskell, Texas, man proved why he is the greatest competitor in Bullfighters Only history by knocking down the competition Saturday during the final performance of the 2017 season at the BFO Las Vegas Championship at the Tropicana Casino and Resort. 

 

“I woke up (Friday) morning as ready to go as I have ever been,” Rutkowski said.

“It’s been a long 10 days, and I’ve had some bumps and bruises at 16 staples. Fortunately, I was able to take care of what I needed to come away with this championship.”

 

Rutkowski advanced to the three-man championship round after an 85.5-point fight in his section. Before the final three fights began, the Texan had already earned his second straight world title after Toby Inman failed to advance. But there was still business to tend to. 

 

“It was a relief, sorts, because I knew I came to Vegas and won some money,” said Rutkowski, who pocketed the BFO’s first $50,000 bonus paid to the world champion. “But I came here to win the event and solidify my status as a world champ.”   READ MORE...
