On October 1st it was announced
at a press conference at the Holiday Motel
in Port-Vila, Vanuatu that local hero Kali
“The Vanuatu Kid” Jacobus will square off
with Plaisakda Singwancha from Thailand for
the Universal Boxing Organization world
super middleweight title on October 24.
The fight will take place at Port-Vila’s
Parliament Park, and arranged by Wesley Rasu
and the World UBO Vanuatu Committee.
The Vanuatu Kid, 12-3 (9), won the UBO
International super middleweight title when
he stopped Fijian Temo Kolitapa in July, and
with the support of the Vanuatu Government
he is now in a position to become a world
champion in front of his adoring fans.
But he will not have an easy time against
Singwancha, the hard-punching Thai who has
stopped thirty-two of his opponents: 38-18
(32), and is riding a three-fight winning
Jacobus vs. Singwancha will be the first
ever UBO world title fight on Vanuatu soil,
but Universal Boxing Organization Oceania
Commissioner Reginald Leca expects it to be
just the beginning, with many successful and
interesting events in the future.
