16 KOs) headlined in his hometown against veteran Francisco
“Charrito” Gomez in the scheduled 10-round main event for
the vacant World Boxing Council (WBC) FECARBOX Flyweight

inside, remaining a sitting duck for the gifted Mendoza.
Mendoza dropped Gomez at the end of round five and closed
the show with a vicious body shot.
In the co-featured event, super bantamweight Jesus “Koreano”
Ramirez nearly finished off Anthony “Boy” Jimenez Salas

victory. Moreno was a 5-time Sonora State amateur champion
