Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Lightweight Champion Noel Echevarria retained his title for the first time on Saturday night, October 16, fending off the brave challenge of Philadelphia warrior Jerome Conquest.

 
 

In a battle of genuine good-guys and role-models, headlining a card promoted by One One Six Promotions at The Venue At Coosa Landing in Gadsden, Alabama, Echevarria won a deserved unanimous decision.

Conquest came to win, and took the first two rounds on all thee judges scorecards. But Echevarria started to turn things around in round three, and from that point on seemed to be one step ahead of Conquest, landing some good combinations and using his ring generalship to keep his foe off balance.

Echevarria knocked fellow southpaw Conquest down with a straight left in round six, and again with a short right hook on the inside in round nine, but both times Conquest beat the count of referee Jeff Dodson and continued fighting back.


 
 

After twelve entertaining rounds of boxing, judge Harold Hunt scored the fight 117-109, judge Colby Dodson scored it 116-110 and judge Justin Moon scored it 114-112.

I learned a lot from this fight, and I want to thank Conquest for fighting hard and being so hungry to win. He is a very good and smart fighter, with plenty of heart and courage to fight back”, said the champion after the fight.

The Holy Fire” Echevarria recorded his fifth straight victory, all this year, and improved his professional ledger to 20-7 (12). “The Conqueror” Conquest, who deserves a lot of credit for making it an entertaining bout, drops to a very deceiving 11-6 (1).
