Moreno Dropping Back To 118, Kameda-Ruiz Winner

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (33-2-1, 12KOs) arrived back home in Panama and announced that he plans to return to the bantamweight division to defend his WBA "super title." Moreno had received special permission to move up in weight to challenge WBC champion Abner Mares last Saturday in Los Angeles. Moreno lost a twelve round unanimous decision and doesn't plan to stick around at 122-pounds.

Pursuant to the agreement with the WBA, Moreno will have to face the winner of Koki Kameda (28-1, 17KOs) vs. Hugo Ruiz (31-1, 28KOs), who battle for the Japanese boxer's "regular" WBA bantamweight title on December 4th in Osaka. Moreno had previously told the WBA that he would fight the winner if he decided to return to 118-pounds.

forget Mares, especially Jen-Kins 12 rounds 2 Abner...Moreno is doing the right thing, and @ 118 he's a strong boxer.

It's not like he got destroyed by Mares, it was a close fight. It's a shame because there are many fighters he could beat at 122. But if he has to move down, Moreno/Yamanaka is the fight I wanna see…

[QUOTE=toolegit;12691550]Good idea for Moreno to go back to 118. He knows he cannot deal with any legitimate 122 pounder.[/QUOTE] Did he not give the best 122 pounder hell? Wtf you talking about??

He's good but he's not aggressive and he's down fall would be his lack of power. I think him being more aggressive would make up his lack of power.
