Universal Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) related news bits and information.


UBO Inter-Continental Light Heavyweight Champion Karel Horejsek (16-12-3, 13 KOs) has been competing as an amateur simultaneously with his professional boxing activities.

As recent as November 3, he won an unpaid bout in Prague, and since then he has won twice in the professional ranks, including capturing the UBO title.

This kind of scenario is becoming more and more common, and word is now that Horejsek will be attempting to qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan.

We wish him all the best of luck!


Former UBO world title-challenger Prisca Vicot (11-6, 2 KOs) from France is set for another big opportunity, as she fights former title-holder Christina Linardatou (12-2, 6 KOs) for the vacant WBO World Super Lightweight title on February 8 in Hammond, USA.

Vicot lost a decision to Alicia Melina Kummer for the UBO world title last March, a fight which was later given UBO 2019 Fight of the Year honors.

Still going (very) strong at forty-three years of age, she has since captured WBF, GBU and WIBF world titles.

Former UBO Inter-Conttinetal Super Welterweight Champion, Sirmongkhon Iamthuam (97-4, 62 KOs) from Thailand is also still going strong, aged forty-two. His career is extraordinary, to say the least, with a remarkable climb up through the weight-classes.

Iamthuam (AKA Sirimongkol Singwancha) started his career as a Flyweight in 1994, won the WBU world title at Super Flyweight in 1995, and then WBC and WBU world titles at Bantamweight in 1995 and 1996.

In 2002 he captured the WBC world Super Featherweight crown, and in 2007 the PABA Super Lightweight title. In 2012 he added something called the WBC Asian Boxing Council Continental Welterweight belt to his collection.

In 2014 he won the WBO Asia-Pacific title at Super Welterweight, and in 2017 the UBO Inter-Continental Super Welterweight title.

In September of 2018, in what was his one-hundredth outing, he became Thai national Light Heavyweight Champion. This past December he returned to the ring with a second round stoppage in a non-title fight.
