Luxembourg-based Frenchman Cedric Peynaud is the new Universal Boxing Organization™ International Welterweight Champion after winning the vacant title on Saturday (November 5) at the Centre Sportif in Dudelange, Luxembourg.


Peynaud scored a seventh round technical knockout over late substitute Kakhaber Avetisiani from Georgia, who came in on one days notice after original foe Mikheil Gogebashvili was part of a car accident shortly before his scheduled departure to Luxembourg.

The visitor put on a game performance despite the very difficult circumstances, but Peynaud proved too strong and dominated most of the rounds. So, quite early in the fight it was clear that Avetisiani would have to land a big punch to trouble the home-fighter.

It wasn’t to be, and when referee Tonio Tiberi waved the fight off in the seventh round, Peynaud, who is also a world champion Kickboxer, could celebrate his third championship as a professional boxer, having also captured the Benelux and Luxembourg titles last June.



After a bad start to his career, Peynaud is now undefeated in his last four bouts and improved his record to 4-3-3 (2). Avetisiani falls to 45-39-1 (27), fighting almost anyone worth mentioning on the European scene the last ten years.
