The vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ All-Africa Welterweight title will be on the line on February 11 in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo, when local attraction “Young Nelson Champion” Eric Kapia Mukadi (8-0, 1 KO) takes on Akeem Dodo (5-0, 3 KOs) from Nigeria.

The fight will be presented by promoter Mukadi Manda in cooperation with Beltexco, the country’s leading distributer of consumer goods, who has always been a big supporter of professional boxing in D.R.C. with their Nelson razor blades.  

Still only 19-years-old (he turns 20 on January 30), Eric Kapia Mukadi is by African boxing insiders considered to be one of the brightest hopes of Congolese boxing.

Style-wise he is compared to legendary names such as Sugar Ray Leonard and newly-crowned UBO Inter-Continental Champion Roy Jones Jr.

If successful against Dodo, Mukadi will be looking to defend the All-Africa title three times before going for the Inter-Continental championship, and eventually a world title shot.

But first “the Young Nelson Champion”, nicknamed so in honor of the support from Beltexco, has to beat the undefeated Nigerian.

However, time is on his side, and he has a busy fighting-schedule ahead to help prepare him for the lofty goals of the future:

Before the UBO title fight, Mukadi will box a tune-up bout on January 28 in Lubumbashi, where Matamba Postolo is set to defend his UBO All-Africa Heavyweight title, and he is also penciled in to fight on the February 25 undercard in Matadi where Manroy Sadic goes for the UBO Youth World title.
