The world bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Association (WBA), Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (30-1-1, 10KOs), has returned to the gym to stay sharp and begin training for a possible fight Lorezno Parra (31-2-1, 18KOs) on June 18 at the Arena Robert Duran in Panama. 

Parra has been waiting for this fight for a long time. The date was postoned numerous times. Initially there were issues with the television networks, and then Moreno was going to face Nonito Donaire in a May unification, but the fight broke apart after Donaire became involved in a promotional dispute. 

Moreno has been inactive since last August's win over Nehomar Cermeño. Moreno's manager Roberto Grimaldo is finalizing the details and says the boxer is going to receive at least $100,000 tax free.

Things have been tense between Moreno and Grimaldo. Last week Moreno theatened to sue Grimaldo over a claimed contract breach. Moreno was upset with his lack of activity and Grimaldo's refusal of a four fight prmotional offer, worth $1.2 million, from Golden Boy Promotions. The manager is attempting to smooth things over by finalizing the Parra deal.
