The UBO International Light Heavyweight title fight between Amin Bai-Saleem and Said Mbelwa, scheduled for June 22 in Oman, has been postponed for a second time.

 
 

Saleem has not been able to recover in time from a hand-injury, and a new date will be confirmed by Al Swayni Promotions in due course.

 

Sad news recently broke that former UBO International Light Heavyweight Champion Zoltan Kiss Jr. passed away, only forty-three years old.

Kiss, who also held the Hungarian national crown, won the UBO International title in August of 2011 by defeating Janos Olah.

In a career that spanned between 2005 and 2016 he fought sixty times, compiling a 33-24-3 (13) record, and shared a ring with the likes of former undefeated WBO World Champion Harry Simon.

The Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) sends its condolences to his family and loved-ones.

Rest in peace Champion!


Its been quite a year so far for two-time UBO All-Africa Welterweight Champion Salehe Mkalekwa (13-5, 3 KOs) from Tanzania.

On March 10 he regained the UBO title by defeating Juma Waswa in Dar Es Salaam, and just over five weeks later he added the vacant ABU crown to his resume when he scored a unanimous decision over undefeated Egyptian Andreas Valavanis in Nairobi, Kenya.

On June 1 Mkalekwa was in Mbabane in Swaziland, where he moved up to Super Welterweight and lost by unanimous decision over twelve rounds to Namibian Anthony Jarmann (14-2-1, 8 KOs) for the vacant WBA Pan African title.


On June 22 in Alcobendas, Spain, UBO Female World Minimumweight Champion Oezlem Sahin (24-1-1, 8 KOs) from Germany will attempt to win a second world title, when she squares off with Joana Pastrana (12-1, 4 KOs) for the vacant IBF belt.

The Universal Boxing Organization (UBO) wishes Sahin all the best of luck in her big fight!

 

Happy Retirement to Sweden´s former UBO Female World Super Welterweight Champion Mikaela Lauren (31-5, 13 KOs) who reportedly had her last fight when she beat former IBF World Champion Eva Bajic on June 9 in Gothenburg.

Lauren won the UBO World title defeating the same Bajic in October of 2012, and defended the title in March of 2014 against Esther Matshiya.

She also went on to win WBC and IBO world championships before calling it a day.
