Belgium-based Tunisian lightweight Hedi Slimani, now 7-1 (5), gave a masterclass to Denmark’s late, late substitute Tommi Schmidt on Saturday, January 29 in Ecaussinnes, Belgium to win the first title of his young professional career.

Referee Tonio Tiberi from Luxemburg stopped the fight after 0:43 min. of the ninth round, with Schmidt visibly shaken, and awarded the WBF International belt to the 23-year-old Slimani.

Slimani did not set a foot wrong and won every round, even scoring a knockdown along the way. With his quickness and power, the new champion seems primed for a successful further career, which is guided by the clever Francois Condello as manager. He staged this promotion in cooperation with Challenger Events.
