New Mexico fight criticized

By Chris Cozzone

New Mexico Athletic Commission (NMAC) Chairman Alberto Leon is criticizing the upcoming June 4 fight between Hector Munoz and Jorge Reyes. Munoz vs. Reyes will be the co-main on the Johnny Tapia vs. TBA bill at Hard Rock at Isleta, south of Albuquerque – a card that is being sanctioned by the Isleta Athletic Commission. When approached about whether such a fight would be approved by the NMAC, Chairman Leon answered that he does not believe so.

“I am only one member of the commission and do not speak for everyone,” Leon said today. “But it’s extremely unlikely that a fight between Munoz and Reyes would be approved – for many reasons. Based on Reyes’ record, weight discrepancy and multiple suspensions, not only would the fight not be approved, but Reyes would not be given a license.” (more…)
