World Boxing Council Light Heavyweight Title
This will be the second time in Doudou Ngumbu’s career that he will be fighting for a light heavyweight title. On December 2, 2017 Ngumbu lost a 12 round unanimous decision to Igor Mikhalkin in France for the International Boxing Organization light heavyweight title. Counter to that, Oleksandr Gvozdyk is a former 2012 bronze medal winning Olympic boxer from Ukraine that will be defending his title belt for the second time.
Oleksandr Gvozdyk is 31 years old and has a career record of 16-0 with a total of 13 knockout wins for his career. He is currently the third ranked light heavyweight in the world. “The Nail” stands at six feet, two inches tall with a reach of 75.5 inches and fights from an orthodox stance. The native of Ukraine now resides in Oxnard, California.
Gvozdyk was a three-time amateur champion from the Ukraine and went undefeated in nine bouts while competing in the World Series of Boxing from 2011 through 2013. He also came close to winning the World Amateur Boxing championships on two occasions.
In his last fight on December 1, 2018, Gvozdyk scored an 11th round knockout win over Adonis Stevenson in Quebec City to maintain possession of his World Boxing Council world light heavyweight title.
Prior to that on March 17, 2018 Gvozdyk won the interim World Boxing Council world light heavyweight title in a 12 round unanimous decision win over Mehdi Amar at the Madison Square Garden Theatre in, New York.
Doudou Ngumbu is 37 years of age and has a career record of 38-8 with a total of 14 knockout wins and one knockout loss for his career. Ngumbu is currently ranked 25th in the world.

Ngumbu is coming off a 12 round majority decision win over Yoann Kongolo on May 25, 2018 in France to earn the opportunity for this championship bout against Gvozdyk. With the win Ngumbu won the World Boxing Council Francophone light heavyweight title. It was an important comeback for Ngumbu after losing that initial championship opportunity against Igor Mikhalkin.
Oleksandr Gvozdyk vs. Doudou Ngumbu
It’s no accident why the undefeated and defending champion Gvozdyk is such an overwhelming favorite. Certainly, this has the look of being more of a tune up fight for the defending champion than an actual title bout that he can lose. In fact, Ngumbu barely rates the proverbial puncher’s chance.
