Donaire-Moreno: Chemito Rejects Offer, Wants Big Bucks

By Jhonny Gonzalez

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."

[B]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…
