Judges scored the fight 116-113, 115-113 and 115-113
in favor of Ngumbu, 33, who is originally from Congo.

Cuts appeared on both fighters towards the end of the 12-round fight, but it
was Ngumbu who was the wiser boxer by unleashing well-placed counter punches during
the 33-year-old aggressive rushes.

A native of Vinnytsia Oblast, Uzelkov was the reigning WBO titleholder coming into the fight.
