Pedro Moreno out of headlining bout on Friday night
Super lightweight prospect Pedro Moreno (11-0, 7 KOs) of Sacramento, Ca, who was set to fight in the main event of his first card has pulled out of his scheduled eight-round fight against fellow unbeaten prospect Ramon Mascarena (10-0, 5 KOs) as of tonight. Via a press release, Moreno, 21, fell ill Tuesday night and made the decision today to remove himself from the Thompson Boxing card today.
Wednesday’s change elevates bantamweights Mario Hernandez (8-0-1, 3 KOs) and Luis Fernando Saavedra (7-6, 3 KOs) to the eight-round main event. “It’s an unfortunate situation for Pedro and Ramon because both fighters were beyond excited to showcase their boxing ability in our main event,” said Alex Camponovo, matchmaker and general manager at Thompson Boxing.
“The good news is we still have an excellent card lined up for boxing fans. Mario Hernandez and Luis Fernando Saavedra are two, no-nonsense boxers that will put on a tremendous performance in our new main event.”
