Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) world Lightweight champion Stevie “Sledgehammer” Morgan will make her second title-defense against massively experienced perennial contender Calista Silgado on October 14 in Gadsden, Alabama.


Morgan (8-0, 7 KOs), from Tampa, Florida, became UBO world champion last March when she stopped Lira Huyke in three rounds. She retained the title two months later, blowing out undefeated Angi Romero in the first round.

Now she will face probably her biggest test to date in 35-year-old Colombian Silgado (21-17-4, 16 KOs), who has been a pro for almost twelve years, faced the best in the world and challenged for no less than eight world championships.

Although she has still not managed to win a world title, she has been able to come back every time and put herself in position for another shot, this time at Lightweight against one of the hardest punchers in the division.


Silgado has been the ten-round distance eight times in her career, while Morgan has so far never gone past four rounds. If the American is not able to end the fight early, it will be interesting to see how the experience of Silgado will play a part in the latter rounds.

The Morgan vs. Silgado UBO world Lightweight title fight will headline a card promoted by One One Six Boxing Promotions at The Venue at Coosa Landing in Gadsden, Alabama.
