Former world champion Eric Morel, who was tentatively scheduled to face WBA bantamweight “super” champion Anselmo Moreno on October 15 and then on November 5, has set his sights on WBA “regular” champion Koki Kameda since it appears that Moreno will have to deal problems with the WBA and therefore his planned defense defense Morel will be off. “Moreno has a dispute with his manager and we are very sad about it,” said Morel’s father/trainer Cyril Morel. “We wanted that fight. It seems that the WBA will make Koki Kameda a super champion and we have no problem with a Kameda fight if he wants. We told our promoter (Golden Boy) and the WBA that we would fight Goliath or King Kong….Eric is available. We want to fight for the title. We already had targeted Moreno who is a very good and unbeaten but we don’t know what the WBA will do. We’ll fight against any bantamweight champion.”
