Cheka, Matumla, Toledo, and More...
UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™
Current Inter-Continental Middleweight titlist Francis Cheka was the first UBO Champion to fight in 2011, as he won a non title fight on January 1 in Dar Es Salaam. Cheka beat countryman Mada Maugo on points, and improved his record to 21-6-1 (13).

It is worth noticing that among the few men to beat Cheka are current WBO World Champion Robert Stieglitz (L TKO5), current European Champion Matthew Macklin (L10) and former British Champion Paul Smith (L8).

Another Tanzanian, Inter-Continental Bantamweight Champion Mbwana Matumla (19-5, 11 KOs), will travel to Almaty, Kazakhstan to fight Zhanat Zhakiyanov (13-1, 6 KOs) on February 25. The fight is scheduled for twelve rounds, but it is still uncertain if the UBO title will be on the line or not.

Matumla last fought on August 28 when he lost a decision to former World Champion Volodymyr Sidorenko in Ukraine for a WBC belt. Zhakiyanov is coming off a victory, winning something called the WBC ABCO Continental title this past December.

Universal Boxing Organization™ Inter-Continental Lightweight Champion Humberto “Bam Baby” Toledo (39-6-2, 23 KOs) was recently voted among the ten best athletes in Ecuador in 2010. Promoter Vladimir Zamora reports that the voting was done by a large group of Ecuador’s leading sports journalists, and that it is a very big honor to be in the Top-10.  

Since winning the UBO title in September against Luis Ernesto Jose from the Dominican Republic, Toledo won a non-title fight in November. He had won a WBC regional title earlier in the year, and followed that up with a non-title victory before facing Jose.

Former Universal Boxing Organization™ World Lightweight Champion Dariusz Snarski is a World Champion again. Snarski won the vacant World Boxing Foundation title on December 19 with a unanimous decision over countryman Krzysztof Cieslak in his hometown of Byalistok, Poland.  

Snarski won the UBO World title in November 2009, but was stripped of the title in the fall of 2010 when a defense could not be confirmed within the stipulated timeframe. He went on to lose a fight against Cieslak in October, but then got his revenge in a quick rematch two months later.

Another former UBO World Champion doing well is former Cruiserweight king Goran Delic from Bosnia & Herzegovina. Since being stripped of the UBO title, Delic has won the IBF East/West Europe title, and is now 17-0 (3).

Delic was crowned World Champion in 2007, and made three successful defenses of the title in his native country, twice in front of huge crowds in football stadiums.

It looks like the legal problems of International Heavyweight Champion Laszlo Toth (8-1, 4 Kos) will be resolved very soon, paving the way for his UBO European title fight with Zoltan Petranyi within the next few months. Toth and Petranyi were scheduled to fight on December 14, but the bout was called off on the 13th due to the aforementioned problems.

Petranyi (45-20, 13 KOs) took advantage of his good shape, and won a non title fight over journeyman Gabor Zsalek in Budapest on December 28 instead.
