Comments Off on New WBF Champions: Vovk Shocks Tita, Kindele Out-Fights Kabongo – Press Release/WBF

It was an evening of mixed fortunes for the local favourites on Sunday, September 11, at the Hall Omnisport in Rebecq, Belgium. Two World Boxing Federation (WBF) titles were on the line, but only one of them stayed in Belgium when the night was over.  Fighting for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Welterweight title, Cedric Tita got off to a good start in his encounter with Ukrainian-born Polish banger Mykola Vovk, and in the first three rounds he continuously befuddled the visitor with nice movement and fast punching. But in the fourth round, after suffering a cut eye, Tita made the mistake of standing in front of Vovk to trade punches, which suited his opponent better than it did him. Vovk started to take over, and was soon in control of the fight and putting on the pressure. With hard Read more […]
