UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

FIGHT POSTPONED TO MARCH 23! On Saturday February 25, the Universal Boxing Organization™ will be part of another historic event when the first ever professional boxing championship fight in Pakistan takes place at Ayub National Stadium in the city of Quetta.

 
 

Local hero, and former amateur stand-out, Nadir Baloch will fight former UBO World and International Champion Juma Fundi from Tanzania for the vacant UBO International Super Bantamweight title, in what will be only his second pro bout.


Baloch (1-0, 1 KO), who competed all over the world during his very successful amateur career, made his paid debut last November, winning by knockout in round eight of a scheduled ten-rounder. That unusual approach has now paved the way for an even bigger challenge in his second outing.

 



Against Juma Fundi (29-14-3, 11 KOs) it will be “sink or swim”, as the Tanzanian is a highly experienced and capable opponent for a professional novice such as Baloch. A victory will prove that the Pakistani is one to look out for on the world scene in coming years.


Fundi captured the UBO International Flyweight title in July of 2010, and went on to win the UBO World Flyweight title the following November. While Baloch is fighting for his first title, this will be the twelfth championship fight for Fundi.


As professional boxing is in its infant stages in Pakistan, this event is sure to give the sport a massive boost in the South Asian republic. Baloch claiming the UBO title will take things to another level, and undoubtedly inspire many of his young countrymen to follow their dreams.


The Baloch vs. Fundi UBO International Super Bantamweight title fight will be promoted by Sardar Ahmed Haleemi and Rasheed Baloch.
