Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) World Lightweight Champion Mason Menard (19-1, 14 KOs) will make the first defense of his title on June 16 at the Evangeline Downs Casino in Opelousas, Louisiana against dangerous challenger “Lightning” Lonnie Smith (14-3-2, 10 KOs).
Menard won the UBO World title in August 2011 when he impressively stopped former WBO world title challenger Joseph Laryea from Ghana in four rounds, and he has since stayed busy with clear victories in non title fights over Rynell Griffin and Herbert Quartey.
Mason is a boxing personal trainer at Red's and we would love to see everyone go out and support him on June 16th. Also fighting on the card that night are Bailey Bobbitt and Dylon Hollier,Red's member. Good luck to these guys and hope to see you there.
