Paulo Costa scored the biggest victory of his career at 241 on Saturday in Anaheim, Calif. Not only did he settle his beef with Yoel Romero, Costa kept his professional record unblemished at 13-0 and all but locked him in place as the next challenger to the middleweight championship.

Currently, middleweight champion Robert Whittaker is slated to unify his belt with that of interim titleholder at 243 in October. Costa is likely to face the winner.
