Good, entertaining show. Did anyone else notice Nonito Donaire Sr. in Maraon's corner? If Maraon's boxing technique is any indication of his trainer's abilities, he may need to consider looking for a new one--very wild, and no jab to speak…Comment by KSTAT124 on 06-15-2013
It's the Central American title. "FECARBOX" stands for "Federacion Centroamericana de Boxeo Profesional" which is a regional organization aligned with the WBC.Comment by Bigg Rigg on 06-15-2013
