Two hard-punching Americans emphatically won Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) title fights on Friday, March 22, at the Club La Pradera in Carmen De Apicala, Colombia.

 
 

In what must be considered his first step up in class, Brandon Alexander won the vacant UBO International Middleweight title, beating local man Daniel Lopez.

Alexander, from Zanesville, Ohio, started the fight calmly, boxing well behind his jab and landing well-placed body-shots to control Lopez.

In the second round he turned on the heat with combinations, and floored Lopez with a hard left hook to the body. Lopez was not able to beat the count, prompting referee Daniel Segura to wave it off.

The new UBO International Middleweight champion improved his professional record to 7-0 (5). Lopez falls to 6-3 (5).


 
 

In the co-feature of the show promoted by T & K Boxing Promotions, reigning UBO world Heavyweight champion Jesus “Tito” Escalera successfully retained his title for the first time, defeating undefeated Colombia-based Venezuelan Miguel Viloria.

Puerto Rico-born Escalera, fighting out of Florida, took his time in round one and allowed the game Viloria to press the action.

Viloria was aggressive from the start of round two as well, but Escalera effectively counter-punched and soon connected with a left hook to the head followed by a right hook to the body which sent the challenger down for the full count.

Escalera, the nephew of the great Alfredo “El Salsero” Escalera, took his pro ledger to 20-1 (20), while Viloria goes to 8-1 (4).
