Moises Fuentes Injured, Withdraws From Weekend Defense

By Rafael Soto

Tijuana, BC. - World Boxing Organization (WBO) strawweight champion Mexican Moises Fuentes will not defend his title this coming Saturday in Tijuana, after suffering an injury in training. Fuentes was going to defend his belt against Filipino Michael Landero. However, this past Saturday Fuentes suffered a hand injury durring a sparring session. He went to a doctor who advised him rest.

"I feel very frustrated by my accident last Saturday. While I was sparring, I threw a straight right and hit [my sparring partner's] head. I immediately felt pain and then a lot of discomfort in the hand. I didn't think it was that serious but my knuckles were very swollen this morning and my doctors determined that I couldn't  fight on Saturday," Fuentes said.

Fuentes (14-1-0, 6 KOs) won the world championship in August 2011 in Guadalajara, winning a split decision over Raul "Rayito" Garcia.

With Fuentes out, two-time former world champion "Rayito" Garcia (31-2-0, 19 KOs) will step in to face Michael Landero in a ten round flyweight bout.

Also on the card, a clash between two former world champions with Tomas Rojas (37-13-1, 25 KOs) facing Julio "Sombra" Zarate (28-5-2, 17 KOs) over ten rounds.
