Unbeaten middleweight Adam Etches is to face an Argentine KO specialist Luis Moreno on Kell Brook’s undercard, at Sheffield Arena on October 26.
Eight of Moreno’s last nine fights have ended in KOs. He has a won 16 (KO 11) lost one drawn five record.
Locally, Etches remains the fighter rival Sheffield Boxing Centre boss Glyn Rhodes would like to see face his own Jez Wilson even though Etches and his camp have no plans to agree to the fight.
Rhodes said: “Why do his team think it would be a step backwards? Adam isn’t the best in his own town until he beats Jez never mind best his own country. His 12+0 record is impressive and his 10 KOs looks good but of the 10 KOs eight of his opponents have been unknowns from Estonia, Bulgaria, Ukraine and Belarus.”
