25 Years of Universum!

Klaus-Peter Kohl

On February 24th, 1984, promoter Klaus-Peter Kohl staged his first Universum Fight Night featuring brothers Ralf and Graciano Rocchigiani at Hamburg’s Alsterdorfer Sporthalle. Since then, 272 additional fight cards have been promoted by Universum all over the world. During the 25 years, there have 21 Universum world champions plus 8 female world champions crowned, a lot of great successes were celebrated, but there were also defeats to handle along the way. In commemoration of this unique and successful history, a big anniversary celebration is planned for February 24th where the whole Universum family will celebrate. In addition, it will mark the big comeback of the long-standing former world champion “King” Artur Grigorian, who from 1996 to 2004 rules as a world champion the lightweight division. Also being honored during the evening will be “Boxing Queen” Regina Halmich for her extreordinary career. Naturally, all the current and former world champions will be invited to the big celebration at the famous Universum Gym.

Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
