Juan Carlos Payano Wins World Bantamweight Crown

Deerfield Beach, FL (September 30, 2014) This past Friday night in the Dallas, Texas suburb of Mesquite, JUAN CARLOS PAYANO won the WBA “Super” Bantamweight Crown from longtime champion ANSELMO MORENO via sixth round technical decision.

Boxing legend and Payano promoter MIKE TYSON of IRON MIKE PRODUCTIONS was thrilled with Payano’s performance.

“Juan Carlos truly seized the moment. He had the opportunity of a lifetime and he attacked Moreno from the opening bell,” said Tyson.

“Our entire team is very proud of Juan Carlos, the spirit of his performance and his success typifies Iron Mike fighters.”

Said Chris Middendorf, Vice-President of Iron Mike Productions, “Friday night saw the emergence of a very exciting, all action new world champion. He fits perfectly the Iron Mike mold, almost racing across the ring to begin every round, throwing close to 100 punches and connecting.”

“Payano joins with IMP’s young rising stars, Erickson Lubin, Ievgen Khytrov and Sammy Vasquez, as fighters who are going to become must see fighters. There is no taking time off in a round, and no taking a round off, their fights are all about getting the other guy the hell out of there. For our fans it is ‘edge of your seat’ boxing- put your drink down, throw the scorecards away and get ready to stand up and cheer the action. Congratulations Juan Carlos!”
