Alexey Ribchev won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ International Middleweight title on Sunday night (February 20) in Rousse, Bulgaria, beating hard-punching Latvian dark-horse Jurijs Boreiko by unanimous decision.


Ribchev, fighting in front of a loud home-crowd at the Zala Dunav, was expected to get a tough challenge from Boreiko, a former WBC and EBA title-challenger, but the sharp Bulgarian seemed to always be one step ahead of the visitor.

Boreiko, always dangerous and determined, had some success along the way, but Ribchev did well to keep his cool and use his superior boxing skills to win the rounds.

It was an entertaining fight, and the fans thoroughly enjoyed the success of their hero. Even though Ribchev was superior in skills and it looked as if he had things under control, the possibility of Boreiko landing one of his bombs was always there, and it made for some dramatic moments.  

The durable Latvian, who only lost a majority decision to current IBF World Champion Jan Zavek back in 2004 and has several upset victories on his resume, never stopped trying, despite continuously being outmaneuvered by Ribchev.

After ten rounds, Judges Evtim Lefterov, Daniel Krumov and Emil Todorov scored the bout 100-90, 100-90 and 98-92, but a couple of close rounds along the way could easily have gone to Boreiko. Referee was Venciclav Nikolov.

With the victory Ribchev improved his professional record to 8-2 (3). Boreiko fell to 14-23-1 (11), a very deceiving record for a boxer with his capabilities.

The show was promoted by Vasko Vasilev and his Alexeev Boxing Promotions.
