“Rock Hard Mighty” Mason Menard is still the Universal Boxing Organization™ World Lightweight Champion after retaining his title on Saturday night at the Evangeline Downs Casino in Opelousas, Louisiana, edging a hard-fought unanimous decision over brave challenger “Lightning” Lonnie Smith.


23-year-old Menard, who won the title last August by stopping Ghanaian Joseph Laryea in four rounds, was making his first defense and didn’t get a walkover-opponent in the skilled and tough challenger Smith (25) from Las Vegas.

This was Menard´s third straight fight at the Evangeline Downs, and, as has become custom, his many loyal fans turned up to support.

And the support from his fans may have played a big factor in the champions ability to dig deep to grind out the victory in what turned out to be a brutal fight.

Both boxers put on excellent, gritty performances, but Menard seemed to land a more in most rounds and often appeared to be spurred on by the cheers from the crowd.

After twelve fast-paced rounds of boxing, the judges scored the bout 117-109, 115-110 and 119-107 in favor of Menard, who improved his professional record to 20-1 (14).

Smith dropped to 14-4 (10), and didn’t yet fulfill his goal of becoming his family’s third world champion after father Lonnie Smith Sr. and uncle Eddie Mustafa Muhammad.

“Summer Heat At The Downs” was promoted by Boxncar Promotions, and also featured an exciting undercard that saw debutant Dylan Hollier and prospects Bailey Bobbit, Chris Singleton, Travis Scott and Cody Richard come out victorious.
