UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

The Roar Of Singapore” is close! The massive Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) quadruple-header on Friday February 17 at the Foo Chow Building in Singapore is just around the corner, and both for the UBO and professional boxing in Singapore it is a huge occasion.


Televised by Eleven Sports Network to around 100 million homes across Asia, it is arguably the biggest and most significant professional boxing event in Singapore history, and it is definitely the biggest single UBO championship event since the sanctioning body was established in the fall of 2004.

And Nottingham-born Brit Scott Patrick O’Farrell, CEO and founder of Ringstar Management, the promotional company behind the show, is only happy to pave the way for future extravaganzas of the same magnitude in Singapore:

I am very proud that we are able to do this massive show, and I think it will be a huge success. One world title fight, one Inter-Continental title fight and two Asia-Pacific title fight, plus a great undercard, and all fights matched really competitively, how can it not be?”, asks O´Farrell.

And he is right. All fights are more or less 50/50 match-ups, and a testament to Ringstar´s ambition to consistently deliver entertainment for the fans, and not just build records for local fighters against easy opposition.

The Roar of Singapore” is proof that if promoters dare to do great things, and put their money where their mouths are, almost anything is possible. O´Farrell is a prime example of just this, and his plan is for February 17 to be only the beginning.

We started off with the main event, the world title fight, and little by little the show developed. Now we have four UBO title fights on the same card, something that has never been done before, and I am really satisfied and happy that we are able to pull this off. To achieve you have to believe!”

Plans are already in progress for Ringstar Managements next promotion, in late April, and if all goes well it could be an even bigger spectacle. Seeing how O’Farrell works, and how competent his team is, it is hard to think otherwise.

Headlining “The Roar Of Singapore”, is a highly interesting match-up for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Light Heavyweight title between Ryan Ford (9-0, 6 KOs) from Canada and New Zealand´s Sam Rapira (15-3, 10 KOs).

Malaysian “Miracle” Mirage Khan, AKA Muhammad Meeraj, (7-1, 3 KOs) will challenge for the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight title against Australian underachiever Jake “The Snake” Gathercole (4-6-1, 2 KOs).

Benjamin Kelleher (2-0-1, 1 KOs) from New Zealand takes a big step up in class when he fights for the vacant UBO Asia-Pacific Cruiserweight belt versus the seasoned Satria Antasena (10-8, 4 KOs) from Indonesia.

The fourth UBO championship fight sees local Singapore-star Rafi Majid (3-0, 3 KOs) in an attempt to win the vacant Asia-Pacific Super Middleweight title against Thailand’s former UBO world title-challenger Plaisakda Boonmalert (39-25, 33 KOs).
