Continental champion, boxer of the Union Boxing Promotion company Artem Dalakian (15-0, 11 KOs) after the victory over the Mexican Luis Manuel Macias on May 22 in Kiev came out on the first line of the rating of the World Boxing Association (WBA).

Such a high position in the WBA world ranking allows Dalakian to hold a battle for the flyweight World Champion title by the end of 2017. His opponent will be the Japanese, Kazuto Ioka (22-1, 13KO). Negotiations about a duel between the undefeated UBP boxer and the current world crown holder will begin in the near future.

We note that the other representatives of the UBP Company improved their positions as well.

Multiple European featherweight champion Oleg Yefimovych, who previously held the 6th place in the WBA rankings, rose to the 4th position. The victory over the Belgian Urbano Giuliani brought Yefimovych closer to the duel for the World Champion title.

Also demonstrated growth one more UBP boxer - Alexander Egorov. The recent triumph in the match against the Argentinean Lucas Rafael Baez allowed Alexander to enter the top-10 ranking and take 7th place in the second bantamweight.
