BROOKLYN, NY (April 16, 2016) – IBF #15 super-featherweight ranked contender, Mario Barrios, remained undefeated with a dominating unanimous decision victory over Edgar Gabejan (26-33-6, 9 KOs) a veteran of over 500 ronds, improving his record to (15-0, 8 KOs).

Barrios, who hails from San Antonio, TX, came out guns blazing, dropping Gabejan in round one.  Towering over his opponent, Barrios, who stands over six feet tall, used his height and reach to perfection as he landed precise punches throughout the remainder of the fight.  Gabejan made it to the final bell but was severely beaten up.  Scorecards read 80-71 across the board, all in favor of Barrios. 

This marks the first fight for Barrios in 2016.  With the win, Barrios hope to get back in the ring as soon as possible.  A world title fight by the end of the year is what Barrios has is mind set on.

“I’m happy with my performance tonight,” said Mario Barrios. “My opponent showed a lot of heart making it to the final bell.  Going the full eight rounds was great experience for me.  I feel I’m improving with each fight and I’m hoping by the end of the year I’ll be ready to challenge any of the champions in my division.”
