Mario Lozano Tops Ramon Alvarez In Chihuahua, Mexico
By Jake Donovan
The win might not mean much in the grand scheme of things, but Mario Lozado can at least claim to have added a notable scalp to his resume. The rising welterweight prospect looked strong in taking a unanimous decision over Ramon Alvarez in their main event Saturday evening at Chihuahua University in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Scores were 117-111, 116-112 and 116-111 for Lozado, who performed well in front of a rabid hometown crowd.
The lone significance of the night's opponent was his familiar bloodlines. One of several fighting siblings of current 154 lb. titlist Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, the 23-year old Ramon Alvarez offered a game effort but proved early on to be out of Lozado's league and could do little more than attempt to keep pace.
Lozado ramped up the attack in the later rounds, turning a mathematically close fight into a decisive rout down the stretch. The final outcome was well-deserved for the 26-year old, who improves to 15-3-2 (7KO) in extending his win streak to six straight.
Alvarez falls to 14-4-2 (7KO). The loss ends an eight-fight unbeaten streak.
The bout aired on WBC's live streaming website, WBCBoxing.tv.
