By Raymundo Dioses

 

Luis Arias defeated Scott Sigmon at the Carnegie Music Hall of Homestead in Homestead, Pennsylvania on March 31, 2017 with a dominant unanimous decision victory.

Arias, (17-0, 8KO) made his first defense of the USBA middleweight title by attacking to the body early and was able to hold off a rugged Sigmon over 10 rounds in what was the main event of a Fighter Management fight card. 

Scores were 99-91 across all three judge’s scorecards.

A Midwest native of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Arias won the vacant USBA title with a TKO win over Darryl Cunningham inside four rounds in a hometown bout on August 20, 2016. 

Arias is trained by noted trainer John David Jackson.
