UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

Dear colleagues, friends and associates of the Universal Boxing Organization™.

It’s that time of the year again where we look back at the months that have passed and send a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year out to everybody. 

 
 

2011 was another exciting year where big names such as Roy Jones Jr., Anthony Dirrell and Jo Jo Dan won UBO titles, as did undefeated top-class prospects such as Ranches Barthelemy, Karl Dargan, David Aloua and Jake Giuriceo.   

It was a pleasure to see our former All-America Lightweights Champion Mason Menard get his breakthrough in 2011 by winning the UBO World title, and a wonderful example on how magical our sport can be when last-minute substitute, and big underdog, Willie Herring captured the World Cruiserweight title by stopping Ravea Springs.

During the past twelve months the UBO went all over the world and crowned champions in the USA, South America, Africa, Europe, Oceania, French Polynesia and Asia, visiting countries such as Uruguay, Hungary, Uganda, Bulgaria, Egypt, Vanuatu, France, D.R. Congo, Tanzania, Latvia, Trinidad, Georgia (the country), Tahiti and China.   

UBO President Joerg Herzog

 

Of the world’s seven continents, the only one we didn’t sanction a championship fight on in 2011 was Antarctica! And I don’t think anybody did that…

We are very proud to be part of Chinese boxing history, as our World Super Lightweight Champion Li Wen Yang is the first male professional world champion the country has ever had. China has so many talented boxers, so I am sure that many will follow him.

2011 was also the year where we launched our Champions GIFT program in cooperation with the Global Institute of Functional Training. The GIFT program gives former and current UBO champions an opportunity to prepare for life after their active careers by becoming certified conditioning coaches free of charge, and we hope many will take advantage of this offer in the future.

I want to thank all the promoters, managers, matchmakers, agents and boxing commissions that we have worked with in 2011, but most of all a big thank you goes out to all the boxers, winners as well as losers, who fought for UBO titles. We are proud of, and appreciate, each and every one of you!

I also want to express my gratitude to all our regional representatives and coordinators who are doing a magnificent job for the UBO, as well as all the other people who in one capacity or the other help us grow and make progress every year.

At the same time I would like to acknowledge the thousands and thousands of boxing fans who follow the UBO on Facebook and Twitter. Your support is so important, and every one of you is appreciated. Thank you!

As we always do, we will start the New Year with our annual UBO Boxing Awards and the winners will be published here on the website in early January. In the meantime, Happy Holidays to everybody and may you all have a great 2012!
