By Alfredo Jaime Gómez,

It appears that Raul "Rayito" Garcia (30-2-1, 18KOs) will still get his shot at the former two division champion Ivan Calderon (34-2, 6KOs), at the WBO's annual convention on October 29 in San Juan in Puerto Rico. Garcia returns from a close split decision to Moises Fuentes (14-1, 6KOs), who captured the WBO title at 105-pounds. 

Calderon was going to face the winner, but Fuentes suffered a broken nose in the win over Garcia, which took place on August 27th, and won't recover in time.

Edrulfo Castillo, Garcia's attorney, said: "We are grateful to the WBO and Zanfer Promotions. Raul deserved this chance for such an extraordinary battle."
