Stanislav “Bull” Eschner had home-advantage, and was considered the A-side for a change, but it was not meant to be for the rugged Czech on Saturday night, July 10.

 
 

At the Clarion Congress Hotel in Usti nad Labem, Czech Republic, Slovakia´s Jozef Jurko prevailed to claim the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) International Light Heavyweight title.


Eschner had by far faced the better opposition coming in, and had fared well in losing efforts against some top names, but Jurko was undaunted and shocked the local crown by scoring a fifth round knockout.


The new UBO Champion, taking part in his first title fight, improved his professional record to 7-2 (5) after a career-best performance. Eschner drops to 14-16-1 (7).


 
 

On the undercard, former UBO Inter-Continental Featherweight Champion Martin Parlagi (26-5-1, 14 KOs) returned to winning ways with a decision over Nicaraguan Felix Garcia.

The show was promoted by former European and WBO World Champion Lukas Konecny.
