Dennis Alexio

Dennis Raymond Alexio (born March 12, 1959) is an American former Undisputed World Heavyweight Kickboxing Champion who competed in the light heavyweight, cruiserweight and heavyweight divisions. Starting out as a light heavyweight, Alexio kicked off his career with an extensive, knockout-laden undefeated streak before losing a decision to Don "The Dragon" Wilson in a WKA World Super Light Heavyweight Full Contact Championship match in 1984. He rebounded from this by winning the PKA World Light Heavyweight title that same year before moving up to cruiserweight and taking the ISKA World Cruiserweight Full Contact strap. In the late 1980s, he began his transition to the heavyweight division where he won six world titles and was without a doubt considered the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion. He faced the two toughest tests of his career in 1992 against Branko Cikatić and Stan Longinidis, both who were heavier fighters fighting to a controversial draw with Cikatić and losing to Longinidis via an early low kick KO. Which was later overturned to a No Contest after finding out that there was a hole in the ring which Alexio stepped in which caused the break in his leg and not the Kick by Stan Longinidis. An aggressive fighter possessing good boxing skills and a powerful spinning back kick and Round house Kick/ Muay Thai style to the midsection, head and legs. Alexio retired with an impressive 92% KO ratio.
