On a historic night of boxing tonight (Saturday May 29th) Aberdeen's Lee McAllister successfully won the WBO Africa Super Welterweight title, and retained his PBC Intercontinental Super-Welterweight title with a comprehensive KO victory over Ghana's Richmond Djarbeng.


The fight took place as part of the Let Battle Commence series, promoted by Assassin Promotions, which have been a series of behind closed doors events that have taken place throughout the COVID pandemic; although tonight's event was able to be contested in front of a small crowd due to the easing of restrictions, and also broadcast globally on FITE & VIVA TV.


McAllister, who is a multiple-weight former World Champion, and the most decorated British boxer to ever grace the ring, made history as the first Scotsman to win not only the WBO Africa title, but also the Ghanaian title earlier this year.


In another historic first; McAllister also became the first British boxer to contest a version of the WBO title under licence from the British Irish Boxing Association (BIBA) here in the United Kingdom.
