Two World Boxing Federation (WBF) championships will be up for grabs when up-and-coming promoter Nicolas Vinet opens the doors for a stacked night of professional boxing at the Hall Omnisport in Rebecq, Belgium on Sunday September 11.
In a fight that promises to deliver fireworks, reigning Belgian national champion Cedric Tita, a hard-hitting 35-year-old Southpaw from Liege, will take on Polish-based Ukrainian banger Mykola Vovk for the vacant WBF Intercontinental Welterweight title.
A pro since 2004, Tita has blown hot and cold in the past and brings a somewhat misleading 8-8-1 (5) ledger, while Vovk (25) has only been punching for pay for little over year, but has been very active in building a fine 10-1 (7) record.
The co-featured attraction, another interesting and evenly-matched encounter, sees Matingu “Zulu King” Kindele (31) squaring off with Evariste Kabongo (32) from D.R. Congo, with the vacant WBF International Super Middleweight title on the line.
Kindele, who won the Belgian national Super Middleweight title last year, is 7-5 (3) in the professional ranks having lost to only good opposition. Kabongo is 9-8-3 (1) against equally tough foes, and has previously fought eight times in Belgium, where he is now based, since 2008.
Tita and Kindele may be considered the home-favourites, but the matchmaking in these bouts is such that it could go either way. Whatever happens, and whoever comes out on top, it is almost guaranteed to be an entertaining night for boxing fans attending.
