According to reports in Panama, World Boxing Association (WBA) bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (30-1, 10KOs) has rejected an offer to face WBC/WBO champion Nonito Donaire (26-1, 18KOs) on May 28 at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Moreno's agent, Roberto Grimaldo, was informed by the boxer than offer of $300,000 is insufficient. The message came through Chemito's wife.

"Supposedly, Chemito's wife spoke to him personally because he's not answering me. I left him a message on his phone asking if he was going to fight or not. I left a message today, and yesterday, and he did not answer. And if he's not answering then I believes he's not interested," Grimaldo said. "I think it is a suitable purse. It is not the best purse of the world, but it's best that we could achieve. I have heard that he plans to train in the gym, and I will be there to try to talk to him, if possible."

who moreno thinks he is? he's not even worth half of that amount!

[QUOTE=jrosales13]There is really nothing to say though. If it's true either he doesn't want to fight or just wants to cash out. Ever since the Cermeno rematch, Moreno has been F'ing up. 2nt time since the Cermeno rematch where he has gone MIA. And, a lot of weird stuff with postponement...

If I'm Top Rank I would not pay Moreno that much! :boxing: Montiel is much bigger draw than Moreno and he only was paid 250K~~~ :boxing: If this offer is true and Moreno rejects it... it's obviously his pricing himself out! :boxing:
