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 outpointed Quinonez 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.
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.
After defeating prospect Jairo Ramirez in Las Vegas last year, Fuentes moved up in class to fight undefeated Almazbek Raiymkulov and NABO Champion Ebo Elder. Coming up short in both fights, Fuentes feels this fight with Mora is what his career needs and a win would put him back in a positive direction.

The undercard will include super middleweights - Ayodeji Fadeyi, Denver, Colorado vs. Isreal Garcia, Mexico City, Mexico, Welterweights - Marvin Cordova, Pueblo, Colorado vs. Andre Beckett, Philadelphia, PA.
