Two of Europe’s best young Light Flyweights, Jozsef Ajtai and Szilveszter Kanalas, will get an opportunity to stary 2016 on a high note when they contest the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World title on January 10 at in Budapest, Hungary.

Ajtai (18) brings a fine 12-1 record to the fight, with six wins inside the distance. He won the vacant Hungarian national Light Flyweight title last August with a unanimous decision over former WBF International Flyweight Champion Robert Kanalas.

Still only a teenager, as his opponent, Szilveszter Kanalas (17) enters his first championship fight undefeated at 7-0, having stopped five of his previous opponents. One of Hungary´s brightest prospects in the lighter weight classes, he holds a win over Ajtai in the amateurs and will be looking to repeat that result in the pros.

Also on the card will be former WBF International titlist Zoltan Csala defending his Hungarian Heavyweight title, and a clash between former WBF International Middleweight champion Sandor Micsko and Krisztian Santa to decide the vacant Hungarian Super Welterweight title.
