The Romanian Pitbull”, Ion Barsan won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Baltic Super Middleweight title on Saturday night (September 26) at the Universum Kinocenter in Landau, Germany.


Barsan, from Timisoara in Romania but based in Leipzig, Germany, took on local man Lars Burry in front of a decent crowd, considering the Covid-19 restrictions, in one of the featured attractions of a nine-bout card promoted by Elite Boxing Promotion.

Having spent most of his career on the road, fighting out of the away-corner, Barsan was undaunted by the surroundings, and took control from the first bell, winning the first two rounds before stopping Burry in round three.

This was the third straight victory for Barsan, who at thirty years of age is trying to escape journeyman-status and has entered a new stage of his career with proper training and backing, and it shows that numbers on a record can be very deceiving.


The new UBO Baltic Super Middleweight Champion improved his professional record to 6-17 (4), while 20-year-old Burry drops to 6-6 (3).

With victory in his first championship fight, exactly six years after me made his professional debut on September 26, 2014, Barsan could now be in line to challenge for the UBO International title in the not too distant future.
