Golden Star Boxing takes Victories at Teofista Boxing Series

ELVIS IS KING!!  Who is this man they call Elvis Vukaj and how was he fighting recent Canadian title challenger Gary Kopas?  Elvis put on a brilliant and gutsy performance scoring a well deserved split decision over his vastly more experienced foe.  Elvis scored a knockdown in the closing moments of round one and really picked things up in Rounds 5 and 6 to seal the exciting victory. Looking forward to seeing more of this thrilling light heavyweight in Alberta in the years to come!
Also, Ibrahim El-Jabali scored a three round decision win tonight on the amateur portion of our card. He fought well and we originally had the result listed backwards. Congrats Ibrahim!

In the news! Smealinho Rama, Rookie of the Year

Best of Canada 2012: Rookie of the Year

"The Canadian MMA Rookie of the Year was an easy choice as Smealinho Rama has come out of nowhere and helped breathe life into the once stagnant Canadian Heavyweight division. Rama has gone a perfect 5-0 in his first year of professional competition, taking out the likes of Lee Mein, Craig Hudson and most recently Ryan Fortin. All five of Rama’s victories have come by way of first round TKO or Submission and his impressive rookie campaign has earned him the #2 spot on the Canadian rankings as well as a number one contender bout against the #1 ranked Mike Hackert at MFC 36 in February...

Rama Rockin' with Year-End Awards

"It’s been a banner end to a breakout year for Smealinho Rama.
The affable heavyweight from Calgary, Alberta, recently received two sizeable honors that put a nice bow on his season. He was first handed the Maximum Fighting Championship’s 2012 Submission of the Year for his finish of Ryan Fortin at MFC 35, and just two days later, earned the nod as Fight Matrix’s Male Rookie of the Year...."

The Prince, Smealinho Rama

"One thing has never changed when it comes to combat sports, heavyweights are the fighters that put butts in seats!! Smealinho Rama(5-0) is one of those heavyweights that will be putting a lot of butts in seats as he wreaks havoc in the heavyweight division across Canada. Smealinho is five fights into his career and fighting for the third time on a Maximum Fighting Championships card, there may not be a hotter pro fighter on the planet. Having fought five times in 2012 and never hearing the bell to end round one Rama is looking to dispatch of Mike Hackert on February 15th at MFC 36 in Edmonton Canada in similar fashion..."
