Undefeated Hungarian Lightweight champion Tamas Kiliti is set for what will likely be his toughest test to date, when he fights for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Lightweight title on May 25.

 
 

In his home town Szekesfehervar, Kiliti (28) will take on Argentinian veteran Miguel Cesario Antin (31), a former WBC Latino champion with experience from fighting high level opponents.


Kiliti is 9-0 (6) since turning professional in 2019, and won the Hungarian national title in only his fourth pro fight in 2022.


While he only had five fights in his first four years in the paid ranks, he had an active 2023 with four solid wins, including a decision over former ABU title-challenger Baina Mazola.


 
 

El Gato” Antin (20-14-1) made his pro debut in May of 2015, and almost exactly four years later he became WBC champion when he stopped compatriot Pablo Emanuel Ojeda (16-4-1) in round eight of their fight in Buenos Aires.

He is only 1-4-1 in his last six outings, but one shouldn't be fooled by those statistics. The draw was against 11-0 Luke Evans, and the defeats all came on points against Kane Gardner (14-2), Harlem Eubank (16-0), Maxim Prodan (21-2-1) and Tiernan Bradley (8-0).

The Hungarian home-town hero has not faced anyone of Antin´s calibre as a professional, and will need to be on top of his game to win his first non-domestic championship opportunity.

Kiliti vs. Cesario Antin for the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title will be the main event of a show promoted by Kiliti Promotions.
