PAYANO TAKES BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE, MARROQUIN STOPS SOTO, HATLEY COMES BACK FROM CANVAS

Written by Hector Sanchez.  Photos by Stacey Verbeek

In a boxing ring in the middle of the Mesquite, Texas Arena in Mesquite, Texas, a boxing world champion was crowned.  Only in Texas can something like this happen and Dominican Republic silver medalist JUAN CARLOS PAYANO (16-0, 8KO’s) came into this fight confident that he would win.  Trained by German Caicedo in Miami in the final days leading up to this fight, he was quoted as saying “I realize that Moreno is a tough fighter, but it makes me very proud to be fighting a great champion like him.  It has always been my aim to fight against the best and become one of them myself.”  He not only fought the best on Mike Tyson’s “Big Texas Throwdown,” but he took the title away from former WBA Super World bantamweight champion Anselmo “Chemito” Moreno (35-3-1, 12KO’s) of San Miguelito, Panama.
