UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

POSTPONED! NEW DATE TBA! While its a rare occurrence, it has happened before that accomplished amateurs fight for, and win, championships in their professional debuts.


Among them are current super star Vasyl Lomachenko, who captured the WBO International Featherweight title in his first pro fight in 2013.

June 22, at the Shangri-La Hotel & Resort Ballroom in Muscat, Oman, local boxing hero Amin Bait Saleem will attempt to copy that accomplishment.

On a show promoted by Alswayni Boxing Promotions, he takes on veteran Tanzanian Said Mbelwa for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Light Heavyweight title.

Nicknamed “The Armz”, Bait Saleem is a United Arab Emirates (UAE) amateur champion, and the first boxer from Oman to turn professional.

It is safe to say he is not choosing an easy path, fighting an experienced foe for a championship over ten rounds in his debut.

Said Mbelwa from Dar-Es-Salaam has no less than seventy-five paid fights on his ledger (43-26-5, 28 KOs), and has been a pro for over ten years.

A former Tanzanian Champion at Super Middleweight and the reigning Tanzanian champion at Light Heavyweight, this will be his eleventh title fight.
