At a press-conference in Kampala, A & B Promotions recently announced a Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Championship event taking place at the Lugogo Hockey Grounds in Uganda´s capital on August 25.


Addressing the media in attendance, promoter Acram Iga informed that local veteran Joey Vegas, a former African (ABU) and WBC International Light Heavyweight Champion who started his professional career in 2004 in England, will finally get his shot at a world title.


In the main event of the big show, Vegas (20-16-3, 13 KOs) will face former World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Middleweight Champion Karama Nyilawila (25-18-3, 14 KOs) from Tanzania for the vacant UBO World Cruiserweight title.

Unlike the local man, Nyilawila has had several opportunities to win world championships. After capturing the WBF Middleweight crown in 2010 he came up short in an attempt to win the UBO World Super Middleweight title in 2015.
