Castaneda, Moran advance to “Last Chance” final

The semi-finals of the ProBox “Last Chance” super lightweight tournament took place Friday night at the ProBox Events Center in Plant City, Florida.

Semifinal 1
Kendo “Tremendo” Castaneda (19-5, 9 KOs) scored a hard-fought ten round unanimous decision over Joseph Fernandez (15-5, 3 KOs). Great fight with both having their moments. Castaneda rocked Fernandez in round nine. The result was in doubt until ring announcer Marc Lichtenfeld revealed the scores of 96-94 3x. Prior to the scores, it was announced that if the fight was a draw, they would fight one more round!

Semifinal 2
Antonio “Toño” Moran (29-5-1, 19 KOs) scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Michael Dutchover (16-3, 10 KOs). Moran was in command all the way. Scores were 99-91, 100-90, 100-90.

Castaneda and Moran will meet in the November 4 final. The winner will take home $50,000.

  • I don’t know who takes it — maybe leaning Moran but pulling for Kendo — but Moran – Castaneda should be a fantastic fight.
