Hungary, Germany and the Democratic Republic of The Congo hosted Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Championship boxing on Saturday, October 14.

 
 

In Szazhalombatta, Hungary, on a show promoted by Fight Night Show Promotions, former UBO International Champion Gabor Kovacs won the vacant UBO European Super Lightweight title when he demolished old foe Karoly Gallovich in the very first round.

Kovacs, who is now undefeated in his last eight outings, had won a decision over Gallovich last May, but this time the 20-year-old Southpaw made short work of his rival and improved his record to 27-9-1 (6). Gallovich falls to 10-5 (0).

Big German Werner Kreiskott is the new UBO World Heavyweight Champion after winning the vacant title with a unanimous decision over tough Georgian Gogita Gorgiladze in the main event of a show at the Unihalle in Wuppertal, Germany.

 



Judges Christophe Hembert from France and Roman Morawiec from Germany scored the fight 115-113, while Judge Jens Uwe Baum from Germany scored 119-109.

Kreiskott, who started his career fighting mostly as an “opponent”, has now gone 13-0-1 in his last fourteen bouts, and is overall 25-19-2 (17). Hard-hitting former WBC, IBF and WBO title-challenger Gorgiladze drops to 36-20 (30).

Plenty of promising talent were on display at the Hotel Metropole in Mbuji-Mayi, D.R.C., but the spotlight were focused on two UBO title fights involving local favorites headlining the nine bout card.

In the main event, undefeated Tshibangu Kayembe (22) improved to 8-0-3 (2) when he stopped Mamadou Kulibali (6-3, 1 KO) from Mali in the first round to win the vacant UBO All-Africa Super Lightweight title.

Kayembe was relentless and sharp, and the visitor was never allowed to find any kind of rhythm before it was all over and waved off by referee Nzau Zama.

The Co-Feature saw D.R.C. national champion Ntumba Kanda score a fifth round knockout of fellow countryman Kiboke Maisha, winning the vacant UBO Central Africa Welterweight title in the process.

Kanda, who won the D.R.C. title last April, took his professional record to 13-1-1 (5), while Maisha is now 5-3 (2) in the paid code.
