I've seen this other question which works out generally, but in the specific case of boss drops, are things stacked in your favour for any bosses/difficulties? I've recently started two monks and a barbarian and I've had two fist weapons and a sickle drop from Leoric, so it's gotten me thinking about this.

For the first kills on a major boss at Normal difficulty; you are guaranteed 2 rares as drops (regardless of MF etc.) Also a comment here suggests that one of them will be a class specific rare, which would explain the fist weapon drops for monks.

No, the only "stacking" is for your first kill of a boss on Normal difficulty. In that instance you have a higher chance of getting better items. It still does not affect item type.

Basically you got lucky, so enjoy it. :)
