Sebastian Lujan: Bring on Devon Alexander at 147!

By Nicholas Samuilov, notifight.com 

WBC Latino welterweight champion Sebastian "Iron" Lujan (38-5-2-1, 24 KOs) is very excited after his recent knockout victory over Los Angeles-based Filipino, Mark Jason Melligen, whom Lujan stopped in the ninth around after scoring four knockdown at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio, Texas. Lujan took the fight on a few days notice after Melligen's original opponent, Freddy Hernandez, withdrew with an injury.

Lujan has now put together a string of twelve straight wins since his points defeat to Jamie Moore in 2007. Lujan would like to face former champion Devon Alexander, who recently announced that he was moving up to 147-pounds.

"I was told about this fight eight days beforehand. I was ready, I boarded the plane [from Argentina] and showed up. He [Melligen] was left-handed, tough, and hits hard. But we were very motivated. We fought on equal terms and I came up with the win. We are ready for great things and great opponents. I spoke to someone about facing Devon Alexander, who is now moving up to welterweight. And I have no problem going to his backyard," Lujan told BoxingScene.com's Carlos Irusta.

Lol I'd rather see this then a boring boxing exhibition between Devon and Paulie, Lujan had me rolling against Melligen the way he broke his will.. Devon's next fight needs to be on ESPN where he belongs.. make it happen!

Lol, good fight, Lujan was really exciting in his last fight against Melligen, the problem is that Devon is slick indeed, so it would not be so easy for Lujan as it was when he faced Melligen. The other problem…
