Chemito Moreno's Title Run Suspended By The WBA

By Jhonny Gonzalez

The World Boxing Association has suspended the championship status of their "super champion" at bantamweight, Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno. The sanctioning organization has made him the "champion in recess." Moreno is able to accept fights but he can't defend his title until his legal battle is resolved in Panama with his ex-manager, Dr. Roberto Grimaldo.

The WBA gave Moreno a two year deadline to resolve the problem. The period has been backtracked, with a start date of June 17, 2011, when "Chemito" held his last defense against Lorenzo Parra at the Arena Roberto Duran.

Moreno was scheduled to make his Golden Boy Promotions debut in a title defense against Eric Morel of Puerto Rico on November 5th. The situation could possible place that fight in jeopardy. Koki Kameda of Japan, the WBA's "regular" bantamweight champion, is now the sole titleholder at the weight - until Moreno's legal issue is sorted out.

What a joke! WBA and WBC are crooks nothing more than that. I bet they can't even name their own champions except for their favorite boxers. Suspended for what? The real champion is still Moreno regardless of his legal problems…
