More than twenty-five members of the Panamanian sports media attended the America Boxing Academy to watch a training session of twenty fighters scheduled to participate in the “Orgullo Nacional” card, on October 9th at the Roberto Duran Arena in Panama City, Panama. WBA bantamweight champion, Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno sparred 3 rounds against teammate Irving Berry. Moreno will face veteran Colombian Jorge Otero in a non title fight on the main event.
Ricardo “El Maestrito” Cordoba did 4 rounds of sparring with Haitian featherweight Johnny Orisme. Cordoba is scheduled to fight 10 rounds against Eddy Julio, a promising Colombian super bantam.
All of the fighters look in very good condition and are very close to the contracted weights.
