UBO  -  Universal Boxing Organization™

Nephew of former WBC world champion Alfredo Escalera, trained by former unified world champion Nate Campbell, and just signed to the most famous promoter in history, Don King!


Name-dropping would not be a hard task for Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) world Heavyweight champion Jesus “Tito” Escalera.

But now he has put himself in the same sentence as another huge name, and in the Heavyweight boxing record-books.

On September 17 he won his nineteenth straight victory inside the distance, stopping Alejandro Berrio to go 19-0 (19) in just eleven months and three days since making his pro debut last October.

All-time great Mike Tyson went 18-0 (18) in eleven months and ten days at the start of his pro career, and needed a year and four days to go 19-0 (19).


Before its claimed that Escalera took an easier road than Tyson, look at the bare facts:

Escalera was 18-0 (18) after ten months and eighteen days, whereas Tyson needed twenty-three days more to reach the same tally. “Tito” even won a fight more in less time!

The combined record of Tyson´s first eighteen opponents is 152-101-5, for an average of 8,4 wins and 5,6 losses.

Include win number nineteen and it is 177-110-5 for Tyson´s foes, with an average of 9,3 wins and 5,7 losses.

Escalera, from Puerto Rico but based in Florida, beat opponents with a combined record of 249-146-7 in his first eighteen, the average being 13,8 wins and 9 losses.

In the nineteen fights he has won to out-do Tyson in knockout-victories inside a year, his adversaries were a combined 289-162-7, averaging 15,2 wins and 8,5 defeats.

In one statistic the legend from Brooklyn were slightly more effective than the UBO world champion:

In eighteen victories Tyson needed 34 rounds to get the jobs done, Escalera 45 rounds. In nineteen it was 37 for Tyson and 48 for Escalera.

Escalera is scheduled to return on November 4 against former WBA world title-challenger Jonathan Guidry (19-1-2) as part of his new deal with Don King.
