Chemito Moreno Submits Petition For Payano Rematch

Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno is putting his decision to move up to 122-pounds on hold, as he formally requested a direct rematch against the new World Boxing Association bantamweight 118 lbs champion, Dominican Juan Carlos Payano.

A letter by Team Moreno was addressed to the Championships Committee headed by Gilberto Jesus Mendoza, WBA vice-president.

In the letter the fighter indicates several points he believes support the rematch and requests Gilberto Mendoza to consider his petition. 

Last week Moreno lost his title via a six round technical decision when the fight was stopped early due to a severe cut that Payano suffered from a clash of heads in the sixth round.

After the loss, Moreno said he struggled to make 118-pounds and didn't feel good at the weight, expressing his intention to move up to 122 but that appears to be on hold pending the WBA's decision.

A technical decision warrants a rematch. Nothing was proved conclusively in the first fight.

Good. It sucks when a champion, especially one that has reigned as long as Chemito loses his title due to a technical decision from cuts. He should avenge this "loss" and then challenge Rigo at 122.
