The epitome of a veteran? Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Super Lightweight Champion Roy Tua Manihuruk from Indonesia!


34-year-old Manihuruk (26-20-1, 18 KOs), from Bengkulu on Indonesian island Sumatra, turned professional in June of 2006.

After winning most of his early bouts, he drew in a March 2009 challenge for the Indonesian national Lightweight title against Zoel Fidal, but won the title by third round knockout in the rematch two months later.

Not long after he had a three-fight losing streak, albeit against excellent opposition, before returning to winning-ways in 2010 when he captured the vacant Indonesian national Super Lightweight title.

He made two defenses of the Indonesian Super Lightweight crown before relinquishing it, and then becoming a two-time champion in the summer of 2011 with a victory over Jonathan Simamora.


In the following years Manihuruk went on the road a lot, mostly to Australia, where often lost to home-town favorites after giving them his best effort.

But he also won fights in Indonesia, and on March 16, 2019 at the Balai Sarbini Convention Hall in Jakarta he got a chance to win the UBO Inter-Continental title, fighting out of the home-corner for a change.

Manihuruk was not about to let the opportunity pass him by, as he boxed well to score a clear unanimous decision over another veteran in former Thai national champion Vachayan Khamon, also known as Suor Carryboy.

Since then Manihuruk has not boxed. A few planned title-defenses has been scrapped for various reasons, and 2020 never got off the ground for him due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

It remains to be seen if he will return in 2021, or if he chooses to finish his career at a high as UBO Champion.
