Stephane Jamoye’s victory over Lee Haskins in December last year has recently been named as the EBU’s ’championship of the year’ for 2012
The fight, which saw the two bantamweights leave everything in the ring, was one of the most talked about of the last 12 months.
In a letter to the British Boxing Board of Control’s general secretary, Robert Smith the EBU wrote;
We have the pleasure to inform you that the EBU Bantamweight championship between Stephane Jamoye and Lee Haskins, held on 14th December last in Herstal, will be prized as"Championship of the year 2012".
A special award will be delivered in the occasion of the upcoming EBU General Meeting to be held on 1st June next in Vienna.
Our best compliments to Mr Haskins.
