Two former WBA super world champions from Panama, Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno and Jezreel “Invisible” Corrales achieved important triumphs in the main card of the WBA KO to Drugs Festival held at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City.

Moreno (41-6-1, 14 KOs), 36, ranked #3 at featherweight, stopped Mexican Gustavo Piña (10-4-2, 5 KOs) by TKO in the 10th and final round (1:23) to get closer to his goal of getting another world championship belt.

In a world lightweight title eliminator, Corrales (26-4, 10 KOs) overcame an early knockdown and two point deductions to outbox previously undefeated Mexican Miguel Madueño (27-1, 25 KOs) and win by unanimous decisión (117-108, 115-109, 116-108). Corrales won the right to be the mandatory challenger for Gervonta Davis.

  • I was interested in Madueno – Corrales. Was a HUGE leap in opposition for Madueno. Maybe his punch is legit, but he needs work on everything else.
