Boxing: Hugo Micallef announces Monaco bout

Hugo Micallef v Michal Bulik

Hugo Micallef, the “Fresh Prince of Monaco”, will box in the Principality for the first time later this month.

The undefeated Monegasque boxer registered his seventh professional victory against Michal Bulik at the start of June, and he is now set to fight on home soil for the first time.

Micallef will meet Denis Bartos in his eighth professional fight at the Chapiteau de Fontvieille on the evening of 23rd September. Since turning professional, the 25-year-old Monegasque, who is a good friend of fellow Monaco native athlete Charles Leclerc, hasn’t been taken out of his comfort zone by his opponents; he should feel at ease competing in the place he calls home. Tickets for the event will be made available soon.

Speaking on social media, Micallef, who is currently training in Las Palmas, said “I am very proud to be able to perform in front of my people, my friends, my family for the first time in my professional career. I’m looking forward to seeing you all, and I can’t wait to be there and experience it with you. Go Monaco!”

An eighth consecutive victory for Micallef, in front of his fellow Monegasques, would be the sweetest of them all.
