Ahmed Abdulrahim from Egypt won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ All-Africa Super Featherweight title on Thursday, September 29, when he defeated fellow countryman Ahmed Moustafa at Becho, Zahraa Maadi in Cairo.


With the Egyptian national title also up for grabs, Abdulrahim out-classed Mostafa down the stretch, in the main event of a show promoted by Richard Nwoba and Louaa Boxing, and was deservedly awarded a clear unanimous decision after ten entertaining rounds.

Judge Mohamed Daf scored it 99-93, judge Hassom Radar scored 99-95 and judge Louaa Mohsen Debes scored 100-95. Third man in the ring was referee Lophye Debes.



The new UBO Champion, 31 years old, broke a two-fight losing stretch and improved his professional record to 8-2 (2), while 24-year-old Moustafa drops to 4-2 (1).

By also winning the Egyptian national Super Featherweight title, Abdulrahim becomes the first Egyptian boxer to hold national titles in two weight-classes at the same time, as he won the Super Bantamweight version earlier this year.
