(OCT 24) Last night Carina "La Reina" Moreno, 104.5,  retains her WBC and WIBA strawweight titles with a TKO victory over a game Jodi Esquibel, 104.5,  at the Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore, California.

In the opening round, Esquibel used her lateral movement to escape the pressure of Moreno. Making adjustments, Moreno came into the second round with a game plan that saw her throw more overhand rights. But it was a powerful straight right hand that landed flush on the nose of Esquibel that changed the fight for good. Esquibel would end the round with blood oozing from her nostrils.

For the rest of the bout, Moreno would land combinations with pin point accuracy, with the overhand right being the most effective. The referee would halt the action in the middle of the rounds as blood continued to pour out the nose of Esquibel. At 1:36 of the ninth round, the referee put an end to the thumping Esquibel (5-3-1, 2 KO's) was taking as Moreno won her twelfth fight in a row improving to (20-1, 6 KO's).

Moreno went on to say, "I came into this fight knowing that Esquibel was going to be in the best shape of her life. I too was in great shape and it paid off. After the first round, my corner told me to let my hands go. Once I saw the blood coming from her nose, I knew she was in trouble. I just kept applying pressure making it hard for her to breath. She showed a lot of heart making it to the ninth round. I give her a lot of credit, she's a tough fighter."

With the win, the 4-time world champion Moreno, will step up to light flyweight and defend her titles against the best fighters in that division. This championship fight was presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions in association with Tachi Palace Casino.  Source: Press Release
