Londoner Zak Chelli became the new World Boxing Association (WBA) Continental super middleweight champion after his victory over American Anthony Sims Jr. on Saturday at Wembley Arena. 

In an excellent setting for him and for his career, the local fighter dominated an experienced opponent like the American and won by unanimous decision of 99-92, 98-92 and 98-92. 

Chelli passed a very important test for him and showed his evolution from 2019 until now. After his loss to Kody Davies three years ago, he has grown  a lot,  and winning this belt is a big step in his career and aspirations. 

It was his 13th victory in his career, while he has 1 loss and 1 draw, with 6 knockouts. The veteran Sims Jr., who put on a good fight, dropped his record to 23 wins, 2 losses, and 20 decision by way of stoppage.
