Arnold Barboza Jr. vs. Antonio Moran
Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA 14/8/21
Top super-lightweight contender Arnold Barboza Jr. (26-0, 10 KOs) extended his unbeaten record, defeating Antonio Moran (26-5-1, 19 KOs) via a dominant unanimous decision.
The judges scored it 100-90, 99-91 and 99-91, as Barboza retained his WBO International super-lightweight title, and re-affirmed his position as the no. 3 super-lightweight in the world in the WBO rankings.
Barboza said: “Moran is a true Mexican warrior. I thought I’d get the knockout, but he ate a lot of punches. My goal is to get that world title shot, but I am going to keep going until I make that a reality. I want any of the big names at 140 pounds.”
