Chemito Moreno Eyes October Barclays Defense in NYC

By Jorge Isaac Olmos,

Panamanian star Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (33-1-1, 12KOs), the bantamweight champion of the World Boxing Association, is likely going to make his eleventh defense on October 20th at the Barclays Center in New York City. Moreno's co-promoter, Carlos Gonzalez, says Moreno will defend his title in October at a new stadium in New York. Golden Boy Promotions, who handle Moreno in the United States, are planning a big event for their debut event at the venue.

"The next fight for Anselmo 'Chemito' Moreno will be in the United States, in New York, and its going to take place in a new stadium," said Gonzalez.

Moreno, 26 years old, has been champion since defeating Wladimir Sydorenko in 2008. He made his tenth defense on the 21st of April against David De La Mora, whom he defeated by TKO in nine rounds.

[QUOTE=Roman Moreno;12140300]No, Mares doesn't deserve the blame. I'm pretty sure Mares would fight him. It's Golden Boy who doesn't want to make that fight. They see Mares as a potential ticket seller, not sure if they see that in Moreno.…

[QUOTE=gingerbreadman;12140285]Fair enough, forgot that Arce was with Top Rank. In which case Moreno-Agbeko's a really good right. If he wins, roll on 122; he's in with Donaire, Rigo, Mares and Nishioka (maybe) there. 122 could become a gem, if the…
