Hungarian Rivals Istvan Zeller and Sandor Micsko will square off for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ International Middleweight title on Sunday May 8 at the Auchan Csepel in Budapest on a show promoted by Fight Night Show Promotion.
Zeller has been a pro for less than three years, making his debut in June 2013, but has been unusually active in fighting no less than forty times and compiling a 30-10 (9) record. In 2015 he boxed an amazing twenty-one times, going 16-5 for the year!
The 26-year-old from the city of Kistarca, but born in Budapest, has contested and won various titles, but taking on Micsko in a main event, and with local pride and the UBO belt on the line, this will probably be his most important assignment to date.
Budapest resident Sandor Micsko, a 29-year-old southpaw who was born in Ukraine but has lived in Hungary most of his life, currently holds a 29-10-2 (21) record. Having shared a ring with notables such as Chris Eubank Jr., Brian Rose, Michel Soro and Matthew Macklin, he is the more accomplished of the two.
In 2013 he captured the Hungarian national and World Boxing Federation Middleweight titles against compatriot Ferenc Hafner, and later that same year he traveled to Croatia to stop 15-0 Ivan Jukic for a WBC regional belt.
He has since won the Hungarian title at Super Middleweight and regained the Hungarian Middleweight crown, and will now be looking to add a UBO belt to his collection on May 8. He won his most recent bout by first round stoppage, and is scheduled for another tune-up on April 16.
UBO Baltic and Mediterranean Commissioner Sebastien Pitois will travel to Budapest to supervise the intriguing encounter, and has high hopes for what will happen in the ring:
“I am very much looking forward to this fight, and to attend the show in general, as the promoter always puts on well-organized events. This will be my second time going to a show promoted by Fight Night Show Promotion, and again its for a well-matched and interesting UBO title fight”, said Pitois.
