PAYANO SHOCKS AS WINS WBA TITLE FROM MORENO

In what was his attempted 13th defence of his Super WBA Bantamweight title, last night Anselmo Moreno (35-3-1, 12KO’s) lost to Juan Carlos Payano (16-0, 9KO’s) via seventh round technical decision.

Reports suggest Payano was cut by a clash of heads in only the second round; the fight itself was stopped after the sixth by doctors advice after the cut refused to concede and points were ultimately tallied.

Winning 59-55 and 58-56 x2, Payano now becomes the WBA Super champion at 118lbs with Britain’s Jamie McDonnell holding the regular version of the WBA title.
