Erick Tshimanga Katompa had to wait a few days extra, but is now the Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) All-Africa Super Middleweight Champion, winning the vacant title on Sunday December 13 at the Resto TipStop in Kinshasa, D.R. Congo.


His fight against co-challenger, and fellow countryman, Badive Badibanga was supposed to take place on Friday December 11, but was suddenly postponed for 48 hours when local authorities claimed the previously planned venue for a political gathering only a few hours before the first bell.

Finally in the ring, after going through the highly unusual process of making weight for the fight twice, Tshimanga Katompa wasted little time and proved a level above Badibanga, winning by second round stoppage.

The new UBO Champion improved his unblemished record to 12-0 (5). Badibanga lost for the first time in the paid ranks, and drops to 7-1-1 (4).

The fight headlined a card promoted by local boxing icon Mukadi Manda.
