JUAN URANGO is seen SATURDAY, MARCH 6 at 9:30 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT), from the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn., exclusively on HBO.

Undefeated titleholder Devon Alexander (19-0, 12 KOs) from St. Louis takes on fellow titleholder Juan Urango (22-2-1, 17 KOs), originally from Monteria, Colombia and now living in south Florida, in a scheduled 12-round bout. Making his HBO debut and first title defense, the 22-year-old Alexander has risen quickly in the division, using fast hands and quick feet to win his title. Two-time 140-pound champ Urango, 29, is known for his hard hitting and iron chin, and has previously battled the likes of Ricky Hatton and Andre Berto.
