Bulgarian Super Middleweight Champion Alexei Ribchev will move down to middleweight to take on Latvian Danger-Man Jurijs Boreiko for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ International title on February 20 at the Zala Dunav in Rousse, Bulgaria.


Ribchev (7-2, 3 KOs) won the Bulgarian title last summer, and is coming off the best victory of his professional career. In December he went to Switzerland and beat former European title-challenger Blas Miguel Martinez from Spain, and he will be looking to build on that success by taking the UBO title in his hometown.

Ribchev’s two setbacks came against very good opposition; undefeated Pole Dariusz Sek and former World amateur champion Jack Culcay from Germany, and both times Ribchev did well and only lost by decisions away from home.

His opponent on February 20, Jurijs Boreiko, is, despite his less than stellar, and very much deceiving, record, a very dangerous task for Ribchev.

While entering this fight at 15-22-1 (11), Boreiko is a former TWBA Champion and has beaten the likes of German Champion Marco Shulze (14-0-1), African Champion Hassan Saku (8-1), Swedish prospect Tonton Semakala (15-0), and German hopeful Arthur Matern (4-0). He also holds a draw with Brazilian Champion Marcus Vinicius de Oliveira (14-0).

The Latvian puncher has won three of his last four bouts, with the loss coming on points in a EBA European title fight against Sebastien Madani (28-1) in France. Earlier in his career he has fought a regular who’s-who of European top-names, getting the wrong end of a majority decisions against current IBF World Champion Jan Zavec and then WBC International title-holder Alpaslan Aguzum.    

Alexei Ribchev


Ribchev vs. Boreiko will be promoted by Alexeev Promotions, and shapes up to be a very interesting encounter between the local favorite and the more experienced travelling upset specialist.
