African Boxing Union champion Tony Salam (16-4-0) goes to battle with undefeated Turkish boxer Emre Karaceper (6-0-0) of Turkey for the UBO International Cruiserweight title on 11 February 2023 in Istanbul.

Fighting under Nigeria’s leading boxing promotion and management company Saleh Gloves Promotions, Salam is ready to take a big leap forward in his professional career and the world boxing rankings by becoming the new UBO International Champion.

The heavily favored Karaceper and his team believe they can defeat the Nigerian in Turkey when the two meet in the ring next month.

Saleh Gloves Promotions boss Saleh Fawaz told our correspondent that they were ready for the fight and expected a better showing in Turkey after their last two attempts went unfavorable.

“We are going to be ready and we will do everything we can to get a better result in Turkey this time. We want to represent Nigeria in the best possible way and give the fans what they deserve. We cannot thank you enough.

“Our work in Nigeria and African boxing is increasing, while our work and our international network are expanding enormously.”
