By Pablo Pletes, notifight.com
As we previously reported on Tuesday, WBO strawweight champion Moises Fuentes suffered a right hand injury and withdrew from this Saturday's fight with Filipino contender Michael Landero in Tijuana, Mexico.
Zanfer Promotions, who are staging the show on Saturday, brought in former champion Raul "Rayito" Garcia on late notice to face Landero. Rayito was training for a fight on March 17th in Culiacan against WBA junior flyweight champion Roman Gonzalez (30-0, 25KOs).
Because Rayito was pulled, Gonzalez will now face Rayito's twin brother, former champion Ramon "Prince" Garcia (16-3-1, 9KOs). In his last outing. Ramon lost a twelve round decision to WBO junior flyweight king Donnie Nietes - but he also has wins over Jesus Geles, Omar Soto, Manuel Vargas and Johnreil Casimero.
