Evans Ashira won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization Intercontinental super welterweight title on Saturday 19 April in Fredriksund, Denmark, when he stopped former European title-holder Mamadou Thiam in the sixth round.

It was a very entertaining bout that saw the local man end matters with a left hook after one minute and five seconds on the sixth.

Ashira took his impressive record to 29-3, 15 knockouts, and Thiam fell to 42-7, 39 knockouts.

These two have both previously fought for world titles against living legends, Ashira loosing a decision to Joe Calzaghe and Thiam falling short against Felix Trinidad.

UBO Supervisor was Torben Seeman, referee: Soren Saugman, Judges: Hans Larsen, Berit Andreasen and Jan Christensen.

Promoter of the fight was Larsson Boxing.
