Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) All-Africa Cruiserweight Champion Lambert Fogoum from Cameroon is preparing to make the first defense of his title, tentatively scheduled for November 6 in his adopted home-town of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.


Promoted by Round10boxing, this will be the first time a UBO All-Africa title fight takes place outside Africa, and while no opponent has been confirmed yet, it will obviously be someone from Africa. And it will be another chapter in what is an amazing success-story.

31-year-old Fogoum (6-1, 5 KOs) survived a rough childhood and youth in Cameroon, living on his own from a young age and often sleeping, and fighting, in the streets. He found boxing at 21, and only had seven amateur bouts, winning them all, before turning pro.

In 2013 he graduated from law-school, and decided to move to Dubai in search for better opportunities. He found work in a Gym, continued to develop his boxing skills at the same time, and made his professional debut in 2014.


But after only two paid fights, his life took a turn when he, and his outstanding physique, was discovered by the fitness world, and convinced to become a fitness-model. That put his boxing career on hold, while Fogoum won many fitness competitions.

The accomplishments in his new sport enabled Fogoum to attract sponsors for his boxing career, and in 2018 he made a comeback to the ring. Last March he reached a high point, so far, when he stopped Ghanaian Stephen Abbey in Accra to win the UBO title.

The return and recent success of Fogoum was greatly helped by Jose Mohan of Round10boxing, whom he credits for jump-starting his career, and the fighter plans to continue working alongside Mr. Mohan in his quest to reach even higher highs in boxing and in life.

If all goes according to plans, November 6 will be the next step!
