A review of the fight between "Joya" Moreno and "Kika" Chavez(@YessiChav)
Published by La Esquina Azul 08/25/16
The "Jewel " had the opportunity to speak directly with Mauricio
Sulaiman about her fight with " Kika " Chavez.
Esmeralda Moreno is sure that she won the fight she had against
Yessica Chavez and that she and not "Kika" should be the WBC
So Esmeralda herself attended the World Boxing Council
headquarters personally to ask WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman,
to send her bout with Yessica for review.
We'll have to see if the WBC proceeds or not.
The fact that Moreno mentioned the importance of this revision
is because of this kind of dubious failure which jeopardizes the
credibility of sport and the spirit of the people who box as
well as the public that tunes into the fights.
