Carina Moreno to Challenge Kentikian for WBA Flyweight Championship

November 6, 2012 – Former 4-time world champion, Carina “La Reina” Moreno (22-5, 6 KOs) has signed a contract to fight WBA Flyweight champion, Susi Kentikian (29-1, 16 KOs) on December 1, 2012.  The 10-round championship bout will take place in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany.


Once considered a pound for pound female champion, Moreno looks to regain he status as one of the best fighters in the world of women’s boxing.   A win against Kentikian will put Moreno back on top of the food chain. 


“This is a big fight to get my career back on track and I feel confident that the judging will be fair when I fight Kentikian in Germany,” said Moreno. “Melissa McMorrow won a majority decision over there so it’s possible to beat her on her home turf.  Right now my trainer Rick Noble has me working on some flaws we see in Susi’s defense.  It’s going to be a difficult fight but I feel I can get the victory and bring back home the title.”


After being robbed in her last two fights, Moreno’s trainer Rick Noble is hoping to get a fair shake she travels to Germany to face Kentikian. 


“In Carina’s last fight against Irma Sanchez (25-5-1, 7 KOs) she clearly won almost every round, but they gave Sanchez the decision,” stated Nobel. “The fight before that, Carina completely dominated Cindy Amador (9-0, 1 KOs) and the judges gave her every round.  I just hope this time around we get fair judging.  Carina is ready to go and we are expecting Susi to be at her best.  We need to go in there and take the fight to Susi and bring that belt home to the United States.”
