He is only twenty-two years old, and only has twelve professional fights (11-1, 2 KOs), but Malta´s Kerstin ”The Bullet” Brown is already the Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental and European Featherweight Champion.

 
 

Fighting out of harbor-town Msida, Brown made his professional debut at eighteen in January of 2016, beating fellow first-timer Lee Clayton from England by unanimous decision. Rather unusually for debutants, the fight was over eight rounds.


After two more victories, Brown agreed to go to Ukraine for a fight against local man Ihor Magurin, 5-0-1 (2) at the time and quite accomplished as an amateur. Another unusual move for a young prospect.


The Maltese lost a competitive decision after eight rounds, but likely learned a lot in the process. Magurin went on to win the UBO World Super Featherweight title in 2018, so there was certainly no shame in the small set-back.


 
 

The Bullet”, who currently works as an acrobatic gymnastics teacher when he is not in the ring, returned to winning-ways only a month later, and put together a string of six victories to line up his fight for the UBO Inter-Continental title and later the UBO European title.


In both UBO title fights, in March and August of 2019, Brown won comprehensively but had to deal with the distraction of facing late substitutes in both.


On March 2 he stopped Giorgi Abuladze (14-9-1, 5 KOs) for the Inter-Continental belt, and on August 10 he widely out-scored Nukri Gamgebeli (13-7, 9 KOs) to add the European.


With plenty of time to further develop, Brown should have a bright future in the sport. A natural step would be to challenge for the UBO world title at some point, something Brown has expressed a desire to do as soon as possible.
