Mora recently broke into the national rankings when he made a bold move and hit the road to fight former NABF lightweight champion and contender Steve Quinonez. Mora sent Quinonez back to the drawing board by defeating him with a 10 round decision.
Mora, again chose to take on a tough customer as he traveled to El Paso, Texas to fight world contender Juan Carlos Rubio. Mora threw a wrench into the plans of contender Rubio as he denied him a victory. The fight ended in a draw, never, was talk about a rematch perused. Mora continues to stay on the fast track as he prepares to battle Fuentes.
Fuentes sees this fight as his big opportunity to get back on the fast track. By defeating Mora, Fuentes can get back on track and move forward to challenge for a world title.
