Gilberto Mendoza and David Martinez squared off for the vacant Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) Inter-Continental Light Flyweight title on Saturday, July 6, at the Baja California Center in Rosarito, Mexico.

 
 

And as expected it turned out to be a competitive and entertaining fight between aggressive fighters, with many close rounds.


Both men had come to give their all, and while it never turned into the all-out war it was considered likely to be, it was fast-paced and with few dull moments.


In the end one judge scored the fight 77-75 for Martinez, while the two other judges had it 77-75 for Mendoza, making him the winner by split decision.


 
 

Fighting out of Modesto in California, Mendoza won his third straight and improved his professional record to 23-18-4 (11) in a career taking on all comers since turning pro in 2011.

Flash” Martinez, from Monclova, drops to a deceiving 11-8-1 (6), but proved that he is much better than his mediocre record suggests.

The fight headlined “Guerra En La Baja”, promoted by Urbaneja Boxing Promotions in association with Promociones Espinosa.
