Professional boxing is alive and well in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, as a Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) championship double-header in Kinshasa on Saturday (November 2) firmly proved.

 
 

UBO Central Africa Champion Bilindo “Show Yaya” Eseko took on fellow Kinshasan Regie Bangu Vanduku in a rematch with the vacant UBO All-Africa Lightweight title, and local bragging rights, on the line.


The pair first fought in April of 2016 where Eseko won a split decision over four rounds, and the second go-around was equally close as Eseko once again prevailed by split decision.

The new All-Africa Champion is now 11-2 (3) since turning professional in 2013. Bangu Vanduku falls to 6-2 (0).

In the co-featured fight, Maroy Sadiki, who came in as the reigning UBO International and former All-Africa Champion at Cruiserweight, moved up to Heavyweight to contest the vacant UBO Inter-Continental crown.

Nicknamed “The Buffalo”, Sadiki squared off with massively experienced Bolivian Champion, and former WBC Latino titlist, Saul “El Fenix Asesino” Farah.

With a controlled performance, Sadiki handled the extra weight well and emerged victorious by seventh round technical knockout, taking his record to 17-2-1 (8). Farah drops to 71-25-3 (62).
