Tanzanian Francis Cheka won the vacant UBO Intercontinental middleweight title on Saturday March 1st, when he knocked out fellow countryman Hassan Matumla in the 10th round of a show at the Diamond Jubilee Hall in Dar Es Salaam.

Promoter of the fight was Sadic & Co. Ltd. & Sass Marketing Group, and supervision performed by the Pugilistic Syndicate Of Tanzania in cooperation with the UBO.

It was a heated affair between two hugely popular local rivals. The bout started on even terms, but saw Cheka take over as the rounds progressed. In round nine Cheka floored Matumla, but the game co-challenger got up and made it through the round.

In round 10 Cheka knocked down Matumla again, and this time referee Anthony Ruta stopped the fight. Cheka took his record to 14-5-1 (9) and Matumla fell to 14-7 (9). 

Judges were George Ngalula, Omari Yazidu and Jerome Waluza. UBO supervisor: Emmanuel Mlundwa.
