Frenchman Melvin Moreau scored a significant upset to become World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Welterweight champion on Saturday night, December 17, in Belgium.

At the Hall Omnisports Robert Collignon in Amay, Liege, Moreau stopped undefeated local star Quentin Gomes in nine rounds, to register by far the biggest win of his career.

23-year-old Gomes had won IBF Youth world and Belgian national titles earlier this year, and was considered a big favorite to also take the vacant WBF title against Moreau, who obviously had other plans.

Moreau (29) improved his professional record to 11-5-1 (4), scoring his fourth straight victory. Gomes, who obviously is young enough to come back strong, drops to 15-1 (5).

The fight headlined a show promoted by Amay Boxing Club.
