On Saturday February 25 in Berkane, Morocco, the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Super Welterweight championship will be contested in the main event of a show promoted by Hassan Mrbati and his Groupe Boxing of Morocco.


Going out live on national television, and in front of what is expected to be a large and lively crowd in the arena, undefeated former African champion Ahmed Benjeddou is set to take on Georgian veteran Giorgi Ungiadze for the title.

Benjeddou (13-0-2, 3 KOs) a professional since 2009, is the favorite going in, but much less experienced than the battle-tested Ungiadze (39-31, 26 KOs), who is entering his seventy-first paid bout since making his debut in 2005.

Having fought the far superior opposition, Ungiadze´s record is blemished mainly by world class boxers such as Vyasheslav Senchenko, Michael Jennings, Michel Soro, Viktor Plotnikov, Sasha Yengoyan, Fredrick Lawson and Attila Kovacs.


The former Georgian national Welterweight ruler has previously been one part of nine title bouts, while Benjeddou has only been in two belt-fights so far. It shapes up to be an interesting encounter, where experience is likely to play a significant part.
