Joshua Van plans on keeping his 100% finish rate.

Van (6-1) returns to action on November 6 for the fifth time this year at Fury FC 71, and he is coming off the biggest win of his young career.

In August at Fury FC 67, he knocked out many people’s No. 1 flyweight prospect outside of a major promotion, Paris Moran, in the second round. The win was huge, but what made it even more special was the fact that Van specifically called Moran out.

With a knockout win over Moran, it would have made a lot of sense for Van to get the Fury FC flyweight title shot next, but unfortunately, he didn’t get it.

“You know, it is what it is, man. [Fury FC Promoter] Eric Garcia knows what is best for me. And you know, Jason House, my manager, I think he knows what’s best for me. So whatever they got planned for me, I’m going after,” Van told Cageside Press recently.

The 21-year-old would admit that he was a little disappointed when he got the news he wouldn’t be fighting for the title.

Moving past not getting a title shot, Van has his eyes set on keeping his 100% finish rate. He faces Tyler Bialecki (9-9) in the featured bout.

“That’s the goal, man [keeping the 100% finish rate]. I’ve been making predictions before my fights all the time. So I have a feeling it’s gonna be a first-round knockout,” Van said.
