UBO World Super Middleweight Champion Kali Jacobus will defend his title against former WBC Mundo Hispano Champion Rocky Junior from Brazil on April 9 at the Ex-FOL Omnisport Stadium in Port Vila, Vanuatu.


Junior, also a former Sao Paolo State and Mercosur Champion, brings an impressive 11-1 (6) professional record, with his only defeat coming against former European Light Middleweight Champion Ryan Rhodes.

Jacobus, 14-3 (10), was originally scheduled to defend the UBO World title in February. However, hurricanes and venue problems put a stop to that plan, but now all is set to go for next Saturday. The fight will be promoted by Wesley Rasu.

“I entered this sport with the goal of becoming a world champion one day, and I am very excited about getting the opportunity against Jacobus”, said Junior before leaving Sao Paolo Monday morning.

“I will do everything I can to bring the belt back to Brazil, and I am very confident that I will be successful”.

Jose Cleverton de Melo Junior, as is his full birth name, turned professional in 2004 and won the Sao Paolo State title and the Mercosur title, a regional championship for boxers from Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay, in 2007.  

In 2008 he added the WBC Mundo Hispano title to his collection with a unanimous decision over Oscar Samudio from Paraguay.

Junior never defended the WBC regional belt, but has since scored four non-title victories, three of them in Argentina, against the one bad night versus Rhodes in England.

On April 9 “The Brazilian Stallion” will be looking to have a good night, and the promoter is expecting a sell-out crowd to witness Jacobus making his second defense of the world title he won in October 2009 by stopping Thailand’s Plaisakda Singwancha in two rounds.
