UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

When promoter Lee Kiper presents the first ever professional boxing event at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky on January 20, two Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) title fights are topping the bill.


Rising star Samantha Worthington (7-0, 6 KOs) takes on former four-time world champion Yazmin Rivas (40-11, 11 KOs) for the vacant UBO world Super Lightweight title, and the co-feature is equally intriguing.

Los Angeles-based Nigerian Emeka “Lionheart” Nwokolo (11-1, 10 KOs) is set to face Clinton “Native Kid” Chavez (7-1, 4 KOs), fighting out of Albuquerque, for the vacant UBO International Super Welterweight title.

Nwokolo, a pro for just over two years, is moving fast in the paid ranks. Since a chock defeat to Didier Castillo in July of 2022, he has scored four convincing victories and won WBF and ABF titles.


Last December he stayed busy with a second round stoppage of Jose Quintero Valverde in Mexico, and he is now ready to add another belt to his collection in the former home-town of “The Greatest”.

Clinton Chavez will have his own plans, though, as he enters his first title fight with confidence, coming off a good victory over previously undefeated Cesar Alvarado in November.

It could be argued that both men are, in each-other, facing their best opponent to date, and it shapes up to be an action-packed encounter at a venue filled with history.
