Edmond Zefi vs. Christian Mazzon
Palestra Karagac in Pec, Kosovo – 27 December 2021
Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) championship boxing in 2021 concluded on Monday night, December 27, when Arena Ring Box Promotion and Gjocaj Boxing Promotion staged a UBO title twin-bill at the Palestra Karagac in Pec, Kosovo.
The headlining fight of “Fight Night Kosovo” saw Edmond Zefi face tough Italian Christian “La Iena” Mazzon for the vacant UBO Youth World Super Welterweight crown.
After eight rounds of entertaining back-and-forth action, Czech Republic-based Kosovan Zefi was declared the winner by split decision.
Judges Adea Berisha and Ferid Ukshini scored the fight 78-76 and 79-74 for Zefi, while judge Ajet Rreci had it 77-76 in favour of Mazzon.
24-year-old “King Edmond” improved his professional record to 9-1 (5). Mazzon (25) drops to 6-3 (3).
In another home-coming bout, Labinot Xhoxhaj, based in Switzerland, made quick work of Marko Mononen from Finland, scoring a first round stoppage to win the vacant UBO International Cruiserweight title.
Making only his second appearance in his birth-country as a pro, Xhoxhaj was just too strong and punched too hard for Mononen, who had gamely accepted the fight on short notice.
With the victory, Xhoxhaj (28) took his pro ledger to 16-0 (13) and proved why he is one of the biggest boxing stars in Kosovo.
Mononen, coming off three straight victories, falls to 7-2 (1).
