The minimumweight champion will be making the fifth defense of her WBC title against tough Puerto Rican challenger Yahaira Martinez (7-2, 4 KO's). In addition, Moreno and Martinez will fight for the vacant (WIBA) Women's International Boxing Association title.
Flying in from Puerto Rico to face Moreno in front of a hostile crowd, Martinez is coming to win. Yahaira is quite possibly Moreno's toughest opponent. Both losses on Martinez's record come against well proven veteran champions Wendy Rodriguez (19-4, 3 KO's) and Julia Sahin (20-0, 2 KO's).
In her last fight, Moreno moved up to light flyweight and defeated the strong Eileen Olszewski (5-2), capturing the (IFBA) International Female Boxing Association title. "La Reina" looks to continue her winning ways as she stated, "After moving up in weight and winning a title my confidence is at an all time high. Martinez will be a tough fight, but I believe in my ability to come out victorious. The fans will get their money's worth come fight night."
