Alexander, Urango to meet in title unification

Alexander, Urango to meet in title unification

Undefeated champion Devon Alexander will meet fellow champion Juan Urango in a junior welterweight unification fight in March.
Alexander (19-0, 12 KOs) will defend his WBC belt for the first time against Urango, who holds the IBF title. The fight is scheduled for March 6 at Mohegan Sun Arena.
The 22-year-old Alexander hasn't fought since stopping Junior Witter last August. The product of the rough Hyde Park neighborhood in North St. Louis is considered one of the rising stars in the 140-pound (63 1/2-kilogram) division.
The 29-year-old Urango (22-2-1, 17 KOs) hasn't been shy about facing some of the best in the world, his only two losses coming to former champ Ricky Hatton in 2007 and current welterweight titleholder Andre Berto early last year.
