UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

23-year-old Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Female International Super Flyweight Champion Sofia Abraamyan (5-1, 2 KOs) was born and raised in Novosibirsk, Siberia, Russia´s third largest city, in May of 1997.


Her parents ran a small grocery store, and it was her father, who loved boxing but never boxed himself, who brought his youngest daughter to the gym for the first time.

On February 8, 2020, Abraamyan won the UBO International title when she defeated former five-time world title-challenger Oksana Romanova from Ukraine, and impressively doing so in her opponents home-town Kiev.

Her boxing idol being Mike Tyson, she is unmarried and lives with her dog Teddy, fully focused on achieving her goal of becoming a world champion sooner rather than later.


Q: Hello Sofia. Thank you very much for taking the time to do this interview. To start things off, can you please tell us a bit about your amateur experience?

A: No problem. Yes, of course. I had between 80 and 90 amateur bouts, and won the Siberian Federal District and All-Russian championships several times.

Q: Did you do any sports before you picked up boxing?

A: I did Kick-boxing, and won silver in the Russian championships and bronze in the 2011 (youth) world championships.

Q: So, its not an easy time to be an athlete, and everyone has had their problems living their normal lives. How are you managing getting through the Covid-19 crisis we are right now in the middle of?

A: Well, I have trained at home. On the ground outside. I have just done my best, and tried to keep in shape. And I had to work hard, because when there is no fight there is no money.

Q: You won the UBO International title in your most recent fight, not long before we were hit by Covid, but you actually lost your professional debut in June of 2018, dropping a decision to Fatima Dudieva (also a debutant, but currently 7-0). Tell us a little bit about that experience…

A: I was just not ready for this fight. It was in the summer, and we had no real boxing training at the time, only running. The fight was offered with a weeks notice, so I really had no time to prepare properly.

After the fight I didn't take a break, but I decided that I would use the experience to achieve my goals in boxing. I don't regret taking the fight, it was just the beginning of my story and I am going to get my revenge for this loss.

Q: What are your plans short-term and long-term in boxing?

A: I want to get back in the ring as soon as possible. Long-term I am going to become world champion, and I am not going to stop there! I want to announce myself to the whole world.

Q: How long do you think it will be before you are ready to fight for a world title, hopefully the UBO world title?

A: I believe I am ready to fight for the world title right now!

Q: Anything you would like to say in closing, to your fans or just in general?

A: I want to say that if you love what you do, you will definitely achieve your goals!

And also, if there are people out there who are interested in investing in an athlete, to be a sponsor, then please get in touch. I am open to a cooperation.
