Moreno: I Hope Donaire Has The Courage To Fight Me!

By Chris Robinson

On Saturday night at the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas, WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo ‘Chemito’ Moreno produced a polished and professional performance in outclassing former title challenger David De La Mora. Moreno’s defense and sharp-punching from his southpaw stance troubled De La Mora all night long, as the Panamanian stylist registered knockdowns in rounds two and six while De La Mora opted to remain on his stool following the eighth round.
 
The victory for Moreno was his second straight on U.S. soil, as he successfully defended his belt over twelve rounds against crude Armenian Vic Darchinyan this past December in Anaheim, California.
 
Speaking through international advisor, matchmaker, and promoter Sampson Lewkowicz shortly after his victory, Moreno didn’t seem elated but more so assured in what he had just accomplished.
 
“I worked very well and I have no complaints of my performance,” stated Moreno, who raised his record to 33-1-1 with 12 knockouts. “My confidence is in my training for the fight. I want to show the public how good I am.”
 
Starting to gain some interest with American audiences with exposure on Showtime’s airwaves, Moreno admits that this is the only time in his life where he feels that his boxing career is starting to come along to his expectations.
 
“This is the first time that I feel so confident that my career is going all the way up to the top,” said Moreno. “Before, I couldn’t get out and show myself with my other management.”
 
And despite multiple defenses of his title that he won from Wladimir Sidorenko in May of 2008, Moreno feels that now is the time to move up and he has an urge to meet junior featherweight titlist Nonito Donaire.
 
“I have the same advisor as Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez and if [Julio Cesar] Chavez [Jr.] fights Martinez, I would love to fight on the undercard against Nonito Donaire, if he has the courage to confront me. I hope that I won’t have as much trouble as Martinez has,” said Moreno.
 
Moreno was asked what his impression is of Donaire as a fighter but seems more interested in simply landing the fight in the first place.
 
“He’s an excellent boxer but to prove himself that he’s the best, he needs to fight the best,” said Moreno. “I hope that he has the courage to confront me and not be a coward like others.”

Moreno won't ever get a crack at Donaire. Not only because of the GB/TR feud, but because the fight is too much risk too little reward for Donaire. Heck I really doubt that GB would even allow Mares to fight…

I'm still waiting to see Moreno/Mares, since these dudes have been walking side by side without looking at each other once. Nonito's working on his own terms right now. He called for the wv2 fight and got it. He'll call…

Donaires best beats Morenos best If Moreno stays at bantum and Mares stays at s.bantum then Agbeko is the biggest name for his resume left before he moves up or defends against some non-descripe fighter the only other fight that's…
