Erik Nazaryan from Belgium won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ International Light Heavyweight title on Saturday (October 22) in front of a sold-out crowd at the Sporthal Tempelhof in his hometown Brugge.


Nazaryan dominated Hungarian co-challenger Balazs Horvath from the first round, eventually winning by third round technical knockout to lift his first professional championship in a career that got off the ground in 2004.

The 31-year-old new UBO Champion has now won eight straight fights, all inside the distance, and improved his record to 19-17-4 (13).

Coming off two victories, Horvath (37), only a pro since March 2013 but now with an astonishing forty-seven paid bouts, falls to 27-20 (6).

After the fight, a jubilant Nazaryan made it clear that he is not satisfied after this his biggest triumph, saying to Belgian media:

I am not afraid of anyone, because I hit hard. I want to fight for a world title, and now I am eligible to do so. This victory opens a lot of doors.”

The Nazaryan vs. Horvath UBO International Light Heavyweight title fight and full undercard was promoted by Francesco Leliaert.
