Panama's Anselmo Moreno (33-1-1, 12 KOs), will face Abner Mares (24-0-1, 13 KOs) on Saturday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, hoping to wrestle a junior featherweight belt away from his Mexican foe.
Moreno, who has held a bantamweight title since 2008, will be making his 122-pound debut in this fight. The Panamanian is undefeated in his past 27 fights and is one of the finest technical fighters in boxing today.
Here are five keys to victory for Moreno in this championship fight:
Going the distance
Patience is a virtue
Now you see me, now you don't
Hit, hide and add up
Save the best for last
