De Leon upsets Acevedo by KO6 in Argentina

In the 10 round main event, Juan Nicolas De Leon (13-3, 4 KOs) upset previously unbeaten Jose Hugo Acevedo (13-1-1, 8 KOs) by sixth round KO to win the Argentina (FAB) lightweight title at the Microestadio Municipal de Hurlingham, in Hurlingham, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The scheduled for ten round co-feature saw Hernan David Perez (7-3, 3 KOs) upset the more experienced veteran Walter Gabriel (23-8, 15 KOs) by way of an eighth round knockout. Impressive win for Perez as Sequeira had once gone the distance with a young Avril Yildrim who will fight Saul Alvarez Saturday night.
