RIOT AT THE HYATT, and progressed to become the WBC World
Strawweight Champion. Carina "La Reina" Moreno, the pride of
Watsonville fought 5 times in Monterey, and returns home with her
World Championship belt. "I'm excited about having her back and
giving fans a chance to see her in action again" say's
promoter/matchmaker Jerry Hoffman.
Carina will be matched tough, against a
bigger and more experienced pro in Sharon Gaines from Las Vegas. The
contract weight for Moreno (13-1) vs. Gaines (11-7) will be at 112
pounds, seven pounds heavier than Carina's preferred Championship
weight. "Nobody in the World can beat Carina at 105, but giving up
size to her opponent for this bout was the only way a match could be
made in Monterey" explains Hoffman. See attachment for fight
