Rouss Laguna, the wife of Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno, said her husband's recent surgery will not prevent his upcoming defense of the WBA bantamweight title against former champion Eric Morel. The fight is tentative for November 5th. Moreno had surgery on Tuesday of this week for appendicitis at the Punta Pacifica Hospital in Panama. She told reporters that Moreno will be back in the gym next week to begin light training. Moreno's recovery, according to his wife, has been going well so far, but a doctor will review his physical state on Monday.
"Chemito underwent surgery and is home resting. On Monday he will go to the doctor to review their health, "said Laguna yesterday.
