Boris Mdinaradze (18-1, 14 KOs) of Georgia and Selemani Saidi (10-4-2, 8 KOs) from Tanzania will clash in a genuine “Battle Of The Punchers” on September 23 in Gori, Georgia for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ Youth World Middleweight title.


Promoted by Vaja Kvezereli, the bout will take place on the Central town square of Gori, and is expected to bring in a massive crowd. And it could very well turn out to be a magnificent fight with two young, hungry hard-hitters going at it in pursuit of their dream!  

At 21 years of age Boris Mdinaradze has already been a pro for four and a half years. Turning professional at seventeen, he won his first nine fights, six by stoppage, before getting his first crack at a title last year when he fought Bilel Latreche for the IBF Youth World title in France.

Mdinaradze was disqualified for low blows in five rounds against Latreche, but gained a lot of experience and has since won nine bouts on the trot, and eight of them inside the distance. Now he is ready to try again to win his first championship, but despite fighting at home he will be in with a stern challenge in Selemani Saidi (23).

Saidi made his paid debut at only sixteen in 2004, and got off to a rough start losing by third round knockout to countryman Fred George. He drew his second bout before winning two and then losing again to one Kassim Kassim. Since then things has turned around for him!

After going 2-2-1 in his first five, Saidi scored three knockout victories to line up a shot at the Tanzanian national title in 2007. An underdog against Alibaba Ramadhani, Saidi surprised ringsiders by putting on a clinic and stopping his opponent in two one-sided rounds.

Like Mdinaradze, this will also be Saidi’s second chance at winning a Youth championship. Just this past July he put on a determined and impressive effort against undefeated Ukrainian Oleksandr Spyrko (12-0), in Ukraine, but dropped a close ten round decision for the IBO version at Light Middleweight.  

This shapes up to be a very interesting encounter, and it seems almost impossible that it will go the full ten rounds. Both carry impressive power in both hands, and both will be coming out all guns blazing with intentions of destroying the other guy. It’s a big cliché in boxing, but…DON’T BLINK!
