UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

The Indoor Stadium in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania will host a big Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Championship triple-header on Saturday March 10, it has just been confirmed by Kigula Sports Ent., the shows promoter.


In the main event former UBO World Super Featherweight Champion Cosmas Cheka (21-9-5, 4 KOs) will rematch Dar Es Salaam rival Haidari Mchanjo (9-3-2, 4 KOs), with the vacant UBO International Super Featherweight title on the line.

Cheka and Mchanjo fought last August, with the 19-year-old underdog coming away with a close majority decision victory after eight rounds. Cheka (26), who won the UBO World title in 2016, will be looking to settle the score and put the young buck in his place.

Cheka has won his last two outings convincingly, while “Blue Fire” Mchanjo has only lost once in his last eight fights, so both men will enter the rematch with plenty of confidence.

Also on the card, former UBO All-Africa Welterweight titlist Salehe Mkalekwa (11-4, 3 KOs) will attempt to regain his old crown when he fights Ugandan Mubaraka Sseguya (10-4, 5 KOs) for the vacant belt in the evenings co-feature.

Mkalekwa defeated Kenyan James Onyango in 2016 to first win the All-Africa title, but never defended it. He is now eager to become a two-time champion, but will be in with a tough opponent in Sseguya.

Finally, local girl Halima Vunjabei (5-3-1, 3 KOs) takes on Kenyan Nocholine Achieng (3-7, 1 KO) for the vacant UBO Female International Junior Flyweight title.

A full undercard of interesting fights will complete the quality show.
