Light heavyweight prospect Umar Dzambekov returns against Ghanaian veteran Dodzi Kemeh in the eight-round co-feature on the next ‘Hollywood Fight Nights’ event set for Friday, June 9 at the Commerce Casino in Commerce, California, and broadcast live internationally by UFC FIGHT PASS.
Following an outstanding amateur career in his native Austria, Dzambekov (4-0, 3 KOs) has quickly impressed the Southern California boxing fans with devastating knockouts in his last two fights. On January 27, 2023, the 25-year-old southpaw knocked out previously undefeated Anthony Fleming in the fourth round. He followed that up with a third-round stoppage of Nathan Davis Sharp on April 14, 2023.
“I’m excited to be featured on UFC Fight Pass again,” Dzambekov stated in a recent press release. “Now I’m in my first eight round fight against a solid opponent with a good record like Dodzi Kemeh. Training at Wild Card with Marvin Somodio and being on UFC Fight Pass where my fans in Austria can watch is like a dream come true.”
Added 360 Promotions president Tom Loeffler, “Umar is one of the most talented young fighters I’ve seen and is on the fast track as we continue to feature him on UFC FIGHT PASS.”
Fighting in the boxing rich country of Ghana, the 31-year-old Kemeh (25-2, 23 KOs) has won his last six fights all by stoppage. On March 18, 2023, he stopped Felix Mankatah in the fourth round in Accra, Ghana. In his most recent fight in the United States, Kemeh lost a hotly contested battle to undefeated Giovani Santilian on November 17, 2017.
The June 9 event is headlined by a 10-round junior middleweight clash between fast-rising ‘King’ Callum Walsh (6-0, 5 KOs), of Cork, Ireland and perennial contender Carson Jones (43-15-3, 31 KOs).
More information on this sensational night of professional boxing will be announced shortly.
