Elite Boxing Super Star 2” on Friday February 15 at the Galveston in Gent, Belgium, promoted by Nicolas Vinet and his Elite Promotion, is set to be headlined by two World Boxing Federation (WBF) championship fights.

Coming off a split decision non-title fight loss to reigning WBF World Champion Oshin Derieuw last October, Elfi Phillips, 9-5-3 (4), takes on underrated Montenegrin Aleksandra Vujovic, 4-8-2 (2), for the vacant WBF Womens Intercontinental Light Welterweight title.

Philips won the Belgian national title in 2015, and has since challenged for the European crown and a WBC regional strap, losing hard-fought decisions in her opponents home-towns. Now she is ready to fight for a significant title with the backing of her own fans.

In the evenings co-feature, WBF International Welterweight Champion Meriton Karaxha, 22-5-2 (8), makes his first defense of the title he won this past November, when he faces tough-as-nails Rwanda-born Jean Pierre Habimana.

Based in Belgium since 2013, “The African Warrior” Habimana (35) has a modest 9-15-3 (4) record, but fighting almost exclusively against more than competent opposition he is known as a crowd-pleaser who always puts in his best effort to win.
