It was a historic night for Maltese professional boxing on Saturday (March 2) at the very appropriately named and luxurious InterContinental Hotel in the Mediterranean islands beautiful city of St. Julians, as three local boxers won UBO Inter-Continental titles.


In the main event, 21-year-old Kerstin “The Bullet” Brown was very impressive in taking home the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Featherweight title, stopping Giorgi Abuladze (22) from Georgia at 2:41 of the third round.

Brown, whose only loss is on points to current undefeated UBO World Super Featherweight Champion Ihor Magurin in Ukraine, improved his professional record to 10-1 (2), while Abuladze falls to 14-10-1 (5).

Christian “Coqqus” Schembri, now 15-5 (7), captured the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Middleweight title, scoring a seventh round technical knockout over tricky and experienced Georgian Paata Varduashvili, 34-17-2 (27).

Schembri (26) showed determination and composure, coming back from a second round knock-down to wear down Varduashvili (37), who was stopped by the referee at the start of round seven when his nose, possibly broken, bled uncontrollably.

Finally, Clair Ciantar is the new UBO Female Inter-Continental Super Featherweight Champion after blowing out late substitute Marija Fedotenkova from Latvia in the first stanza. Time of stoppage was 1:36.

Ciantar (36), who was coming off a spirited decision-loss to top-class German Beke Bass last November, is now 3-5 (1), and Fedotenkova (21) drops to 1-4 (1).

All three new UBO Inter-Continental Champions are now very much in line to challenge for UBO world honors.

Promoted by Michael Brown and his Supreme Boxing Promotions, the UBO triple-header was televised by TV Malta and Libya TV.
