UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

In a clash of Indonesian warriors, Hamson “Tiger” Lamandau won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Flyweight title on Friday (March 31) at the Cendrawasih Sports Hall in Jakarta.


24-year-old Lamandau derailed the resurrection of UBO Asia-Pacific Champion Samuel Tehuayo, who had hoped to win his second UBO title in consecutive fights and line up a potential shot at the world Flyweight title.

Promoted by Armin Tan, the show was televised live in Indonesia by MNCTV and streamed around the world.

It was an exciting fight from the start, with both boxers trying their hardest to gain momentum. The much more experienced Tehuayo (28) had an edge in ring-generalship, but Lamandau appeared better conditioned and sharper in the exchanges.

As the fight progressed Lamandau started to take over, and when Tehuayo seemingly ran out of gas in the championship rounds the younger man upped the tempo and scored a knock-down in round eleven.

Tehuayo beat the count of referee Philipus Elungan, and made it through the round. But when Lamandau came out looking for the finish in round twelve, it was over after two more knock-downs. Time of stoppage was 2:33.

The new UBO Champion took his professional record to 9-2-1 (6), and it could now be him who gets a shot at the UBO world title in the not too distant future. Very few have managed to stop Tehuayo inside the distance, so it was quite a statement by Lamandau.

Still the Asia Pasific titlist, “Hagler” Tehuayo falls to 21-44-2 (6) in a career fighting some of the best in the world.
