CHRISTIAN MBILLI

Christian Mbilli shows up at a boxing gym for the first time by pure coincidence when he is 15 years old. That same year, he executed his first fight and impressed those around him with his exceptional talent. Being in exceptional physical condition, the man nicknamed “Solid” is reaping the rewards of his efforts after only four months of training. During this first year of competition, he finished third in the French cadet championships. After that, Christian kept racking up victories and at the age of 17, he was considered the favorite to win the French championship. However, an injury keeps him out of this major competition. A few months later, he still manages to win the European Championship with ease. The following year, he won his country’s national senior title. Subsequently, titles followed for Mbilli who became champion of the European Union at just 19 years old. In addition, he finished in the top position in the European qualifying tournament for the 2016 Olympic Games held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. In this biggest international competition in the amateur ranks, the young prodigy merits himself a position in the fourth rank.

 

After accumulating more than 80 fights in Olympic boxing, Mbilli chooses to fight in the prestigious World Series of Boxing where he obtains three consecutive victories against boxers who belong to the elite of their class. In 2017, he made a remarkable entry among the professionals by achieving a brutal knockout in the second round against Adrian Arenas at the Casino de Montréal. Recognized as a formidable slugger, Mbilli recorded 9 victories by knockout in as many appearances in the ring. At the age of 23, he took part in his first championship fight against an experienced opponent, Marcos Jesus Cornejo. It was at the end of the fifth assault that Mbilli won to become WBC Youth Middleweight Champion. With the ultimate goal of becoming the undisputed champion of his division, Christian Mbilli continues to accumulate victories by delivering spectacular performances which appeal greatly to boxing fans. He added the WBC Intercontinental Youth belt to his record by defeating Ramon Aguinaga. Then, he defeated Luis Fernando Pinas to defend his WBC world youth title in the second round. Several renowned boxers including Humberto Gutierrez Ochoa, KeAndrae Leatherwood, Abraham Juarez, and Rolando Paredes suffered the defeat in front of the one nicknamed “Solid” who is the current WBC Francophone middleweight champion.
