Frenchman Elie Konki won the World Boxing Association (WBA) Intercontinental Bantamweight title by defeating Colombian Anuar Salas by unanimous decision at the Palais des sports Marcel Cerdan in Levallois-Perret, France.
The home boxer got cards of 97-93, 98-92, and 98-92 to win the decision and the belt.
Having a technical boxing style and an ability to dominate the ring, the European boxer used all his tools to leave few opportunities to the South American, who tried to make a good fight but was overcome by the host.
Konki is 28 years old and had already been National Champion. However, he now enters the international arena with the achievement of this title and remains undefeated in 9 fights, with only one KO.
The veteran Salas dropped his record to 20 wins, 8 losses, 1 draw, and 12 KOs.
