Francis Tchoffo and Brandon Deslaurier both captured World Boxing Federation (WBF) International titles on Friday night, December 3, at Salle Bellegrave in Pessac, France.
Tchoffo won the vacant Middleweight title, outworking young and tough Serbian Nikola Vlajkov for a wide unanimous decision, scoring a knock-down along the way.
Judges Vincent Dupas, Bulcsu Gabris and Zbigniew Lagosz scored the fight 97-91, 99-88 and 96-92 respectively.
Tchoffo, originally from Cameroon, improved his professional record to 20-19-1 (6). Vlajkov, only twenty years old, falls to 10-9-1 (6).
In the co-main event, Brandon Deslaurier took home the vacant International Cruiserweight title by stopping late substitute Levani Lukhutashvili from Georgia in round two.
Deslaurier connected with a clean left hook which made Lukhutashvili turn away in pain. The doctor was called to inspect, and it was discovered that the visitor had broken his jaw.
Deslaurier is now 13-4-1 (2), while Lukhutashvili drops to 10-11 (9).
Promoter was Spuc Boxe.
