The final program of the upcoming III. World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Convention in Maribor, Slovenia (September 22 – 25) has now been announced by General Secretary Diana Spasova, including details of the WBF Championship Boxing Night on the Saturday, which features a total of three WBF title bouts.

Televised by RTV Slovenija (who will also broadcast the official Convention Opening Ceremony on Thursday afternoon) the huge international WBF championship triple-header will take place at the Dvorana Tabor Hall – just a stone’s throw away from the posh Hotel Habakuk, which hosts the WBF Convention – on Saturday evening, September 24.
WBF International Light Welterweight Champion Jean Moraiti from France is set to make his long-awaited first defense of the title he won last October, when he takes on highly experienced former world title-challenger Mikhail Avakyan from Georgia.
Moraiti, 12-9-1 (0), beat another Georgian, Anzor Gamgebeli, to become champion on home ground in Aubagne, and now he is travelling to Slovenia to fend off the challenge of Avakyan, 36-26-4 (20), who lost a split decision to Englishman Chris Goodwin for the WBF World Welterweight crown on short notice in 2014.
Also on the card, undefeated 22-year-old Malta-based Libyan Malik Zinad, 5-0 (4), will attempt to get his career on a fast-track when he fights battle-tested Hungarian Attila Palko, 23-25 (15) for the vacant WBF International Light Heavyweight title.
Finally, rounding out the card promoted by Tomaz Barada and former two-time world champion Jan Zaveck, entertaining South African David Rajuli, 7-5-1 (2), is paired with Georgian Giorgi Gachechiladze, 21-23-1 (14), to decide the vacant WBF International Super Featherweight championship.
