The Universal Boxing Organization™ will enter the most famous fight-town in the world on July 29, when power-punching Cuban Rances “Kid Blast” Barthelemy takes on Gerardo
Robles for the vacant UBO International Lightweight title at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.


25-year old Barthelemy is considered one of the most exiting prospects in the game, and has so far compiled an undefeated 12-0 (10) record since turning professional in 2009 and signing with Leon Margules and Warriors Boxing Promotions.

The Barthelemy vs. Robles UBO title fight is part of Warriors Boxing’s “Fight Nights at The Cosmopolitan” which will also include a Light Welterweight World title eliminator between Victor Cayo (26-1, 18 KOs) and Lamont Peterson (28-1-1, 14 KOs), as well as the return of Edison “Pantera” Miranda (34-5, 29 KOs) in a ten-round Light Heavyweight bout against another Cuban, Yordanis Despaigne (8-1, 4 KOs). ESPN will televise. 

Rances Barthelemy is the younger brother of 2004 Olympic Champion Yan Barthelemy, now also a pro in the US, but didn’t get a chance to win the ultimate amateur prize himself as he defected to the States prior to the 2008 Beijing games, and could not represent the US due to still being a Cuban national. He won his debut in 13 seconds, and has since continued to impress ringsiders with his crowd-pleasing style.  

Gerardo Robles is on a five-fight winning streak, and has won eleven of his last thirteen bouts. His overall pro ledger is mediocre (14-9, 6 KOs) after losing seven of his first ten fights, one of which was against current world lightweight champion Brandon Rios, but his recent good form suggests that he will be the toughest challenge so far for “Kid Blast”.  



In 2009 Robles beat undefeated Rashad Ganaway (9-0-1), and a few months later he stopped former IBC and NABF title-challenger Alex Perez in four rounds. Last July he beat WBC USNBC Champion Don Juan Futrell by unanimous decision, so the 29-year-old from Kansas City is no stranger to causing upsets. In his latest outing Robles defeated former WBO and WBC title-challenger Leon Bobo.

The Barthelemy vs. Robles UBO International Lightweight title fight is presented by Warriors Boxing Promotions In conjunction with Blue Wave Group. Tickets are on sale now and priced at $250 for VIP tables, $150 for ringside seats, $100 for floor seats, $50 for grandstand seating and $20 for general admission tickets and are available for purchase by calling 877-551-7778 or at www.cosmopolitanlasvegas.com.
