FIGHT CANCELLED! Accomplished Argentinian veteran Fernando David Saucedo (63-9-3, 10 KOs) will be the challenger when Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Lightweight Champion Noel Echevarria (20-7, 12 KOs) makes his second title-defense on April 23 in Gadsden, Alabama.


In a remarkable career, “El Vasco” Saucedo has held numerous titles, including WBC Silver, IBF, WBC and WBO Latino titles, besides South America and Argentina national honours.

This will be his fourth opportunity to win a world title, having lost a decision to Indonesian icon Chris John for the WBA World Featherweight title, a decision to Rances Bathelemy for the IBF World Super Featherweight title, and by tenth round stoppage to Emmanuel Tagoe for the IBO World Lightweight title.

By far the most experienced opponent that Puerto Rico-born Echevarria has faced, Saucedo is coming off a victory and will be determined to make the most of what could be his last chance to become a world champion.


The Holy Fire” Echevarria won the UBO world title last August when he edged former IBF World Champion Rodrigo Guerrero in Atlanta. Only two months later he retained his crown, out-pointing Jerome Conquest at the same venue where he will face Saucedo, The Venue at Coosa Landing in Gadsden.

The Echevarria vs. Saucedo UBO World Lightweight title fight will be promoted by One One Six Promotions, headlining a massive card featuring several interesting undercard bouts.
