In late July the Universal Boxing Organization™ entered the world’s fight capital, Las Vegas, with Rances Barthelemy vs. Gerardo Robles. On August 13 the UBO hits Atlantic City, probably the second most famous boxing city on the planet, when Top Rank in association with Peltz Boxing presents Karl Dargan vs. Juan Suazo for the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title.

 
 

Dargan and Suazo will square off at the Grand Ballroom at Bally's Atlantic City on a show broadcasted throughout the USA on Fox Sports. Also on the card will be an NABA championship bout between Teon Kennedy and Alejandro Lopez.

Hailing from Philadephia, Karl Dargan (9-0, 4 KOs) is handled by Naazim Richardson who also trains living legends Bernard Hopkins and Shane Mosley. Dargan often spars with Mosley, and is considered a great prospect for the future. Winning the UBO title in only his tenth professional fight would be a testament to his potential.

Dargan turned pro at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas in December 2007 after winning the U.S. Amateur championships twice and capturing a gold medal at the Pan Am Games. After seven additional wins he returned to that famous venue this past May to beat Randy Arrellin on the undercard of the Manny Pacquiao - Shane Mosley mega-fight.

Now, three months later, the event is obviously not as big as the Pacman – Sugar Shane card, but this time Dargan is one of the headliners. His opponent Juan Suazo realizes he is the underdog, but the Tuczon, Arizona fighter is on a good run and is coming off two of his careers best performances.

 

 

In June Suazo fought prospect Gabriel Tolmajyan (10-1) to a draw, and as recently as July 29 he went to Las Vegas to beat Mexican tough-guy Ramon Montano. Montano (17-9-2) is no slouch and holds a draw with Dmitriy Saltia and a victory over former contender America Santos.

Top Rank Boxing and Peltz Boxing Promotions presents Karl Dargan vs. Juan Suazo for the vacant UBO Inter-Continental Lightweight title on August 13 at the Grand Ballroom at Bally's Atlantic City. Six additional fights complete the card. First fight will begin at 7.30 p.m.

Tickets priced at $50 and $75 are on sale at the offices of Peltz Boxing Promotions (215-765-0922) and all Ticketmaster outlets (800-736-1420). They also can be purchased online at www.peltzboxing.com and www.Ticketmaster.com.
