Former UBO Asia-Pacific Super Flyweight Champion Rex Tso (22-0, 13 KOs) from Hong Kong has been forced to retire from the sport, due to a serious eye injury.

 
 

Tso (31), nicknamed “The Wonder Kid”, won his UBO title back in April of 2012 beating Torsak Singabasak from Thailand, and went on to add WBC, WBO and WBA regional belts to his collection.

In his very last fight, where he sustained the injury that eventually caused him to retire, Tso beat former WBA world titlist Kohei Kono from Japan.

 

Hizni Altunkaya, the former UBO Youth World Cruiserweight Champion from Neuwied in Germany, has another big fight coming up.

Altunkaya lost a challenge for the vacant WBA “regular” World title to Beibut Shumenov in July, but did well enough to be picked for a fight against WBA “Champion in Recess” Denis Lebedev on September 7 in Russia.

30-year-old Altunkaya (30-2, 17 KOs) and Lebedev (30-2, 22 KOs), who will be 39 come fight-time, will square off in a ten-round non title fight.

 

American Karl Dargan (18-1, 9 KOs), who won the UBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title back in 2011 with a sixth round stoppage of Juan Suazo, made a long overdue return to the ring on August 4, after more than three years of inactivity.

Dargan (33) won a six-round unanimous decision over journeyman Jonathan Perez from Colombia on the undercard of Sergey Kovalev vs. Eleider Alvarez in Atlantic City.

 

Former UBO Youth World Super Featherweight Champion Oszkar Fiko (32-25-1, 17 KOs) from Hungary proved again that he is a much better fighter than his record suggests, when he beat 16-3-2 Roody Pierre Paul on points over six rounds in Canada on July 20.

 

Very few boxers reach one-hundred professional fights, but that's exactly what former UBO Inter-Continental and WBC World Champion Sirimonkhon Iamthuam from Thailand did on September 1 when he beat Muhammad Nsubuga.

A pro since 1994, Iamthuam (41) made a massive jump in weight from Super Welterweight to Light Heavyweight when he captured the vacant Thai national title, and improved his amazing record to 96-4 (61).

In his previous fight, last October, Iamthuam lost a decision to current UBO World Super Welterweight Champion Tommy Browne from Australia.
