Willy Stoppers (96278) Managed by 4 managers while in GAMMA, his most successful run under Jesse Wolf. He fought from 2014-05-11 until 2017-01-21 and his record was 18-16. He is a former 265+ champ and 205lbs contender and had titles in multiple other orgs including Heroic and AD. His biggest wins were over HOF fighters Simon Williams,Kyle Carlton,Jt Colossus,Fidel Duberry,Ricard Cuenca,Diego Sanchez,Hektor Troy. Upon retirement he accumulated 120 ranking him joint 26th best fighter all time.
When you have a total record of 56-36-0 with 50 KO wins and 29 KO losses it is kind of obvious to see what type of fighter Willy was, he was a fighter who usually ended the fight in the first round, more often than not being the winner, but especially during the later part of his career, his chin started to seriously fail him. His record could had been better than the 18-16-0 he had with us, if not for the 2-7 he had in the last 9 fights of his career.
An interesting distinction is that Willy fought under 4 different managers while in GAMMA, something never done before and he had major wins over GAMMA HOF level fighters in 4 different weight classes ranging from 265+ to 185lbs. He joined GAMMA while already late in his career, so the fact he managed to accumulate the record he did, is still spectacular. Without a doubt his best run was early on, while still fighting at 265+. The wins he had over Simon Williams and Kyle Carlton were some of the biggest draws GAMMA ever had and his trilogy with Kyle of of the most interesting.
