Rocky Kaleng from D.R. Congo is the new Universal Boxing Organization™ All-Africa Heavyweight Champion after beating Mohamed Asma of Niger for the vacant title on Sunday (November 27) in Kolwezi, D.R.C.


Fighting under the high patronage of the governor of Lualaba Richard Muyej, a known devoted supporter of sports who wants to encourage youth in D.R.C. to embrace sports and unity in the Central African country, the locally antisipated bout was the first ever All-Africa title fight in Kolwezi.

Both boxers started the fight confidently, but as the rounds passed it was the shorter man, Kaleng, who took control of the action. In round nine, he connected with a strong left hook and send Asma down for the full count, and the large crowd into a frenzy of celebration.
