22-year-old Russian prospect Sofia Abraamyan (4-1, 2 KOs) is in deep waters when she fights for her first professional championship, the Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Female International Super Flyweight title, on Saturday February 8 in Kiev, Ukraine.


Not only will she be in with her most experienced foe to date, former five-time world title-challenger Oksana “Amazon” Romanova (10-29-1, 2 KOs), the fight will also take place in her opponents home-town.

Abraamyan got off to a bad start to her paid campaign, losing her debut to fellow first-timer Fatima Dudieva (currently 6-0), in June of 2018.

But she has since rebounded well, defeating decent opposition in Zemfira Alieva (debut), Tamar Nazarashvili (5-5), Simangele Hadebe (5-2-2) and Cintia Cinjel (6-2).

A week after Abraamyan made her debut, Romanova challenged Sarah Bormann for two world titles in Germany, losing a valiant effort on points.


Last July the tricky veteran proved she still has plenty to offer, when she beat another Russian prospect, Anna Lievina (3-0), by clear unanimous decision in Russia. Undoubtedly she will be looking to do the same to Abraamyan.

Abraamyan will certainly get no favors in Kiev, and if she is able to beat Romanova to become UBO International Champion it will be a significant step in her career.

The fight will be one of the main undercard bouts of a show promoted by Union Boxing Promotion at the Parkovi Convention Centre in Kiev. The headliner features WBA World Flyweight Champion Artem Dalakian defending his title against Josber Perez from Venezuela.
