UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

Still only in its first year of existence, Singapore promotional-outfit Ringstar Management, headed by Englishman Scott O´Farrell, is in the business of making local boxing history, and at the same time steadily establishing itself as one of Asia’s leading promoters.


Last February Ringstar gatecrashed the scene by staging four Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) title fights, on what was at the time the biggest boxing event in The Lion City´s history, billed as “The Roar Of Singapore”.

On that card Super Middleweight Rafi Majid became Singapore´s first ever male professional champion when he won the UBO Asia-Pacific title, and on May 27, when Ringstar presents “The Roar Of Singapore II”, things will be stepped up another notch.


Taking place at the luxurious Resorts World Sentosa, and broadcast to more than one-hundred million potential viewers across Asia by Eleven Sports Network, O´Farrell and his team has this time put together eight championship fights, seven of which are sanctioned by the UBO.

That in itself is historical, but to top things off Singapore could potentially get its first ever World Champion in undefeated WBA Asia titlist Muhamad “The Chosen Wan” Ridhwan (7-0, 6 KOs), who headlines against Tanzanian Fadhili Majiha (20-8-4, 9 KOs) for the vacant UBO World Super Featherweight crown.

In the Co-Main Event, UBO World Light Heavyweight Champion Ryan “The Real Deal” Ford (11-0, 7 KOs) from Canada has a tough first title-defense against Kiwi banger Robert “The Butcher” Berridge (29-6-1, 21 KOs), who has twice before challenged for world titles (IBO & WBA).

Also on the card will be reigning UBO Inter-Continental and Asia-Pacific Light Heavyweight Champion “Miracle” Mirage Khan (8-1, 4 KOs) from Malaysia, defending his belts and attempting to add the IBO Oceania strap, against Chase Haley (3-1, 1 KO) from New Zealand.

Additionally, former two-weight WBC World Champion Sirimongkhon Iamthuam (91-3, 57 KOs) from Thailand fights Indonesian Larry Siwu (24-8, 20 KOs), with the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Super Welterweight title at stake.

Further championship-action sees Cairo George vs. Stevie Ferdinandus (IBO Asia-Pacific Welterweight), Tommy Browne vs. Alexander Bajawa (UBO International Super Welterweight), Ben Kelleher vs. Stephen Anak (UBO Asia-Pacific Cruiserweight) and Keng Fai Hui vs. Indra Anser (UBO Asia-Pacific Welterweight).

As a “Special Attraction”, former UFC Star Taylor “Double Impact” Lapilus from France will be making his professional boxing debut in a four-rounder at Super Lightweight against two-time Indonesian Champion Heri Andriyanto.

Besides five corporate boxing bouts, the card will also include an amateur eliminator for the 2017 South East Asia Games in Malaysia, as Singaporeans Danial Jalil and Jason Chua clash for the right to represent their country at Featherweight.

It is very rare to see a show where all fights are competitively matched, and close to 50/50, but that is certainly the case here. Ringstar Management deserves a huge amount of credit for a massive effort in taking Singapore boxing to a whole new level!

Its “The Roar Of Singapore II – The Pride Of Singapore”, Saturday May 27 at Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore.
