Saturday February 13 was supposed to be a huge night for Turkey´s undefeated Avci brothers, Serdar and Arda, with both fighting for Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) titles at the Club Atlas in Kiev, Ukraine.

 
 

However, their planned opponents from Tanzania, Pascal Ndomba and Adam Mrisho, were unable to travel, reportedly due to positive Covid-19 tests, leaving everything in limbo.


With numerous TV stations across Europe, and especially in Turkey, counting on broadcasting the fights live, the pressure was on, and circumstances harder than ever to salvage the bouts due to world-wide restrictions.


Unfortunately it was not possible to secure a qualified opponent for Serdar Avci´s fight for the UBO Interim World Cruiserweight title, so a postponement was necessary.


 
 

For younger brother Arda it was managed to hastily bring in very experienced Vladimer Janezashvili from Georgia, a former WBC, UBO, WBF, GBC and UBF title-challenger who has clearly seen better days but must be appreciated for saving the day.

Avci didn't show him any mercy though, and wasted little time in capturing the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Super Welterweight title, stopping his foe in the second round.

With the win, “Hunter” Avci improved his professional record to a perfect 6-0 (6). Game but out-gunned Janezashvili falls to 14-12-1 (6).

The fight was promoted by Champion Boxing Promotions, in cooperation with Serdar Avci Promotions.
