Moreno-Payano, Fortuna-Vasquez Bouts Are Ordered

by Himar Rojas

The World Boxing Association has ordered WBA bantamweight champion Anselmo "Chemito" Moreno (34-2-1, 12KOs) of Panama to make a mandatory title defense against Dominican challenger Juan Carlos Payano (14-0, 8KOs).

Also, they ordered Costa Rican boxer Bryan Vasquez (32-1, 17KOs) and Javier Fortuna (23-0-1, 17KOs) to battle for the WBA's interim super featherweight title. Vasquez captured the belt in October with a technical decision over Rene Gonzalez.

It was reported previously on BoxingScene.com that promoter Sampson Lewkowicz was planning to stage a Moreno/Fortuna doubleheader on March 15th in Panama.

Moreno-Payano, Fortuna-Vasquez both fight should be on Cotto/Martinez undercard

[QUOTE=RyunosukeRonin;14078598]Moreno will have no problems with that match. Fortuna does good if you stand in front and trade but no so good if he has to make the fight , Vasquez can box which will make it tough close fight.[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=hougigo;14078606]Uchiyama had some slight trouble with him[/QUOTE] Uchiyama can press a fight and is a lot better than Fortuna who I'm still unsure about he has ability but Vasquez is another test that he really needs to show something more.
