Former amateur-stand-out Nadir Baloch made Pakistani boxing-history on Thursday, March 23, when he won the first non-domestic professional championship fight ever staged in his country, and the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Super Bantamweight title.


A fired-up Baloch, 28 years old and from Barachi, impressively stopped experienced former UBO International and World Flyweight Champion Juma Fundi from Tanzania in the second round of their fight, staged at the Ayub National Stadium in Quetta.

After scoring a knock-down in round one, sending the crowd into a massive roar of joy, Baloch came out determined to end matters in round two, and he managed to do so, knocking Fundi down again and forcing the referee to wave things off at 1:33 of the round.

Baloch, who made his professional debut in a scheduled ten-rounder last November, improved his record to 2-0 (2) and showed that with his extensive amateur back-ground he could be one of those boxers who doesn’t need much building-up.

Juma Fundi (30), who after relinquishing his Flyweight titles in 2010 moved up in weight to challenge for World Boxing Organization (WBO) regional titles at Bantamweight and Super Bantamweight in Thailand, South Africa and the Philippines, drops to 29-15-3 (11).
