The Last Chance tournament kicked off in May on the undercard of Pascal-Meng and initiated with eight fighters in the 140-pound division. All boxers were chosen based on having had a top amateur trajectory before initiating a promising professional career that took a few difficult turns in recent bouts. The winner of the tournament will get a Last Chance at revitalizing his career.
In the quarter finals, Moran beat Jeffrey Torres via unanimous decision, while Dutchover defeated Clarence Booth by split decision. Dutchover will look to outbox Moran, while Moran has emphasized his desire and ability to make it a war.
On that same night in May, Castañeda scored a first-round knockout victory over Sonny Frederickson, while Fernandez upset Zhiming Wang via decision. Castañeda is confident that he can score another knockout win, while Fernandez feels he has what it takes to win the entire tournament.
Additional undercard information will be announced shortly.
