UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

One of the biggest boxing names in East Africa, Francis Cheka, won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) All-Africa Super Middleweight title on Saturday night (May 6), at Jamhuri Stadium in Morogoro, Tanzania.

 
 

Headlining a self-promoted show, 35-year-old Cheka beat local rival Said Mbelwa by sixth round disqualification, as a clearly frustrated Mbelwa disgraced himself by blatantly biting Cheka´s left shoulder in the sixth round.



Cheka, a former World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Champion and former UBO International and Inter-Continental Champion, was ahead on all scorecards (49-46, 49-46 and 48-47) when referee Anthony Ruta pulled the plug.

 



The new UBO All-Africa Super Middleweight Champion improved his professional record to 33-10-2 (17), while Mbelwa, a former UBO, WBF and WBO title-challenger and Tanzanian Light Heavyweight titlist, falls to 39-24-5 (25).
