Chemito Moreno Wants To Face Leo Santa Cruz Next

By Elisinio Castillo

The World Boxing Association (WBA) bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (34-2-1, 12KOs) is once again looking to test the waters at 122-pounds, and this time he wants to face the current WBC champion Leo "Terremoto" Santa Cruz (27-0-1, 15KOs), who won lopsided twelve round unanimous decision over Cristian Mijares this past Saturday night in Las Vegas.

Moreno is scheduled to face Javier Chacon (19-1, 4KOs) on March 22nd at the Arena Roberto Duran in Panama City, Panama. After Chacon, he hopes to face Santa Cruz. Whether the fight can happen right away is unclear. Santa Cruz has a mandatory defense due, against the UK's Carl Frampton. Moreno previously moved up to 122 and lost a twelve round decision to then champion Abner Mares in 2012.

"I talked to Eric Gomez, a senior executive of Golden Boy Promotions," said the spokeswoman and wife of Chemito, Rouss Laguna Moreno. "We invited both Santa Cruz and Gomez to be present at Chemito's next fight in Panama."

[QUOTE=Jalisciense909;14314192]Good fight. Maybe after watching the Santa Cruz vs. Mijares fight Moreno seen a ***** in Santa Cruz's armor.[B] If nothing else, Moreno is decent practice for Santa Cruz to get ready for Rigondeaux.[/B] I hope it happens. :boxing:[/QUOTE] Agree.…

I'd rather see Santa Cruz fight Frampton next. Moreno's one fight at 122 lbs. didn't go so well, he just wasn't big enough for the division.

Moreno's been coming through since they rejected that Donaire fight. I bet he could've won that one too. I'm glad he's been getting into these big matches.

Moreno would give this fraud a Darchinyan like beat down.

Moreno needs to stay in his little dwarf division, Mares basically just swarmed him to a UD and never let him use his skills because he had no power to keep Mares honest.
