France-based Moez Fhima will return to his birth-country of Tunisia for the biggest fight of his life, when he takes on former world champion Aliklych Kanbolatov for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Middleweight title on Saturday April 8 in M´Saken.


Fhima (24-4-2, 8 KOs) is a former IBF and WBC regional titlist at Super Welterweight, and in his most recent bout he captured the African Boxing Union Middleweight championship by dethroning defending champion Patrice Sou Toke from Burkina Faso.

That outing was his first professional fight in Tunisia, and now he is ready to return and take his career to the next level by going for the UBO world title in the main event of a show promoted by Azdine Ben Yacoup and his Association Cathage.

Aliklych Kanbolatov (16-3, 7 KOs) made his professional debut in 2011. While he lost two of his first three fights, he has since gone 15-1 and in 2014 he won first the UBO International title before moving on to win the UBO World Middleweight title.

He never defended the world crown, but now he gets a chance to regain his old belt. Twenty-seven years old Kanbolatov is eight years younger than Fhima, but it remains an open question if youth, or experience, will play a significant part in the outcome of what looks like a genuine fifty-fifty match-up.
