(FEB 7) Last night at the Tachi
Palace Casino in Lemoore, California, Carina “La Reina” Moreno,
109.2, now (21-1, 6 KO's), defeated Sharon Gaines, 109.2, now
11-12-1 (3KO), with an eight-round unanimous decision, in a
scheduled flyweight (112 lb.) bout.
According to Mario Serrano he said, "Moreno showed superior skills
while dominating a one-sided thrashing over Sharon Gaines, 109.2. In
the early rounds Moreno went right at Gaines letting her know that
she wasn’t going to let the move up in weight take affect. Moreno’s
overhand right found a home right from the opening round. As the
fight went down the stretch, Moreno continued to land multiple
punches at will."
“This was a good test to see how I feel at a higher weight,” said
Moreno. “I feel comfortable fighting anywhere from 105 lbs to 112.
I'm going to get together with my management and see what’s next.”
Serrano said, "Moreno wins another unanimous decision with scores of
79-73, 80-72 twice, extending her winning streak to 13."
