Comments Off on Unstoppable! Ushona Gets Second Shot At WBF World Title

When Namibian favorite Bethuel “Unstoppable” Ushona lost a controversial decision for the WBF World Welterweight title to Germany´s Deniz Ilbay last June, the World Boxing Federation executive committee soon after ordered an immediate rematch.  However, Ilbay showed no desire to settle the score in the ring, but rather chose to run away with his disputed win and vacate the title.  So now Ushona will take on former European champion Rafal Jackiewicz from Poland for the vacant title on December 3 in Winhoek, headlining a big show promoted by Salute Boxing Academy.

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 […]

Comments Off on Taylor Mabika Lifts WBF International Cruiserweight Title

Gabon-born Taylor Mabika is the new World Boxing Federation (WBF) International Cruiserweight Champion, after he won the vacant title on Friday night, June 17, in Differdange, Luxembourg by seeing off former world title-challenger Lars Buchholz from Germany.  A fired-up Mabika seemed intend to impress and took the initiative early, winning the first three rounds of what was shaping up to be a one-sided fight, before referee Vincent Dupas stepped in and called it off just before the end of round four. Mabika, a former African titlist and Luxembourg national champion, was throwing a barrage of punches and Buchholz didn’t seem to have an answer for them. But the Germans defense was tight and he never appeared hurt, so it could be argued that the stoppage was a bit premature. Official Read more […]
