Chemito Moreno: I May Return in April, in New York City

By Jhonny Gonzalez

WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (32-1, 11KOs) has returned home to Panama and he's already discussing his next move. He made his American debut last Saturday in California and impressed the local fans with a dominating twelve round decision over feared puncher and former champion Vic Darchinyan. Moreno would like to target the other champions at his weight, including Jorge Arce and Abner Mares. He doesn't see a Mares fight happening soon, although both boxers are promoted by Golden Boy Promotions.  He said Golden Boy head Oscar De La Hoya wants to keep them apart for a while.

"A unification against Abner Mares, unfortunately, is not going to happen right now, but hopefully one day it will happen," said Moreno. "I think a lot of people want to continue seeing me. I want to fight the best. I am ready for my tenth defense. During the press conference, we discussed a possible fight in April in New York. We would start training in January for the fight. I'm okay at 118, I don't see a reason to go to 122. Hopefully we'll be here for a few years and see what happens."
