Mosquera declines WBA title fight vs Chaves

By Gabriel F.Cordero

Panamanian promoter Rogelio Espiño sent the following statement:

¨I want to make an announcement to boxing fans around the world about our Panamanian Alberto Mosquera who we represent. Mosquera was offered a chance to fight for the interim WBA welterweight championship against Argentinian champion Diego Chaves, however, considering that Alberto Mosquera won the WBA Fedelatin super lightweight title last July 21 in Panama City we have decided not to accept this title fight. Mosquera hopes to fight for the world title in the super lightweight division, therefore it’s not considered advisable to move up in weight and we declined the fight against world champion Diego Chaves.”
