Fuentes Confident He Can Knock Ivan Calderon Out

By Rey Colon

Mexico's Moises Fuentes, the 105-pound WBO champion, is defending his title on Saturday night against the former king of that division, Ivan Calderon, and he expects to score a knockout victory over the Puerto Rican veteran. Fuentes has a considerable height advantage and also notes the power advantage.

It has now been revealed by Fuentes that his record on BoxRec is "not accurate." According to Fuentes, the website has him listed with a record of 15-1 with 7KOs but the record is actually 26-1 with 20 knockouts.

"I stand at 1.71 meters, which is around 5'7" and that's a big advantage but I feel the other aspect that helps me the most is my punch. I have 26 fights with 20 knockouts. On BoxRec my record says something else, it's very different, but actually I have a record of 26-1 and 20 KO's. And my only loss was against the WBC number one contender by split decision. Right now I'm going in the ring with the legendary Ivan Calderon and this will be a very interesting fight. I love to win but I also love the knockout. The fight with Ivan has [taken a long time to happen], and I'm going up to 108-pounds afterwards," Fuentes said.
