Anselmo Moreno Doesn't Rule Out Donaire or Parra

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno is not ruling out a unification with WBO/WBC champion Nonito Donaire or a title defense against Venezuelan Lorenzo Parra. Moreno was set to face Parra but the fight postponed several times. An offer is on the table to fight Donaire on May 28 in Atlantic City. The champion of Panama is not happy with the financial terms and made a counter-offer of $500,000 dollars to face Donaire. If Donaire's promoter, Top Rank, pays Moreno the requested $500,000, then he doesn't care when or where the fight takes place.

"I have a lust to fight with Nonito. I think at the moment we are going to make for a good fight. Just as he has a craving to fight, I'm also having the same craving. I know he hits hard, but for me he has not fought anybody. There are several offers and hopefully this week we can get some details because it hurts me [to train] when when I don't know who I'm fighting," Moreno said.

Moreno, who returned on Monday to training camp, is down to a weight of 142 pounds and hopes to increase the pace to place himself in the mid 130s by next week.

[QUOTE=ThePrince;10244521] [B]they SPLIT 1.5 mil between them[/B]:[/QUOTE] That's inaccurate. That figure is closer to their purse in their 1st fight. where Pac got 850K and JMM 750K Pac already got over a Million in the 1st Morales fight.
