Huge KO win in Vegas
June 27, 2020
Boser defeated Philipe Lins via KO (punches) at 2:41 of Round 1 at UFC FIght Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
It was Boser's second UFC victory in three attempts and it came in emphatic fashion. He crushed Lins with one quick combination out of the blue. Referee Herb Dean gave Lins plenty of time to recover, but it clearly wasn't happening. Boser is a rare breed for a heavyweight. He has the typical power (eight career KO wins) you associate with a big man, but he is methodical on the feet. He doesn't throw a ton of strikes, instead preferring to pick his spots. Oh, he also has a pretty excellent mullet. The Canadian will turn 29 years of age in early-August.

Lins next up
May 28, 2020
Boser is in line to take on Philipe Lins in a heavyweight matchup at a yet-to-be-determined location June 27, Raphael Marinho of Combate reports.
Boser was last scheduled to take on Jeff Hughes on March 28, but the event was ultimately cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. He'll now take on Lins, a Brazilian-born fighter who lost his UFC debut to Andrei Arlovski as a heavy favorite back on May 13. Boser will be giving up three inches in reach to Lins on fight night, but over a small sample size, he owns superior marks in terms of striking volume (and defense).
Facing Jeff Hughes in prelim fight
March 16, 2020
Boser (17-6-1) is scheduled to take on Jeff Hughes (10-3-0, 1 NC) in a heavyweight fight March 28 at UFC on ESPN 8.
Boser was summoned by the promotion as a short-term replacement for Carlos Felipe (8-0-0), who withdrew from the event earlier this month for an unspecified reason. The 28-year-old Canadian has gone 1-1 over his first two fights with the promotion.
Takes Gane three rounds
December 22, 2019
Boser lost to Ciryl Gane via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 26-30) at UFC on ESPN+ 23 on Saturday in Busan, South Korea.
Oddsmakers expected Boser to get stopped early, but he pushed through and made it the full 15 minutes, surviving a big final onslaught from the 29-year-old Frenchman. Boser ended up landing 32 significant strikes spread across the head, body and legs -- all of which coming while positioned at a distance. A loss to a surging prospect evens his record at 1-1 with the UFC, but Boser remains a capable fighter that should continue to provide depth to the heavyweight division.
Tabbed for heavyweight bout
October 31, 2019
Boser will face off against Ciryl Gane at UFC Busan on December 21.
Boser will likely be full of confidence for the fight, as he's coming off a unanimous-decision victory over Daniel Spitz in his UFC debut. The Canadian owns an impressive 17-5-1 professional record and will be fighting in his usual heavyweight class. Boser will face a tough test, as Gane is undefeated in his professional career, and is coming off an impressive victory over Don'Tale Mayes via submission.
Wins UFC debut
October 18, 2019
Boser defeated Daniel Spitz via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Friday in Boston.
Making his UFC debut, Boser beat Spitz up on the feet and did so in a variety of different ways. He pounded the head (33 strikes), body (25 strikes), and legs (35 strikes) of his opponent, while absorbing just 32 total strikes himself. Spitz doesn't offer much in terms of opposition, so we will we have to see how Boser looks his next time out, but this was certainly a solid first showing from the Canadian.
