Martin Parlagi won the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Featherweight title on Saturday afternoon (July 2), in the main event of an open-air show in Trutnov, Czech Republic, only a few hours drive from his hometown Prague.
Parlagi, 28 years old, impressively stopped former UBO Inter-Continental Bantamweight Champion Francis Miyeyusho from Tanzania in the second round (1:33), paving the way for a possible future shot at the UBO World title currently held by Russian Vyacheslav Mirzaev.
With the victory Parlagi improved his professional record to 20-2 (11), having only lost by decision in WBO title fights in the United Kingdom. Miyeyusho (36), a pro for more than eighteen years, travels back to Dar Es Salaam at 41-16-3 (24).
On the same card, in a battle of undefeated boxers, Jakub Synek took home the vacant UBO Baltic Cruiserweight title when he convincingly out-scored fellow countryman Daniel Vencl for a unanimous decision.
Synek, who improved his record to 7-0-1 (2), got the verdict by scores of 99-92 (Judge Marcel Brzokoupil), 98-93 (Judge Radek Linka) and 99-91 (Judge Karel Kubec). Vencl, putting up a game and spirited effort, drops to 4-1 (2).
The show was promoted by Stanislav Skoda.
