Rising flyweight contender Alexandre Pantoja was originally approached for the flyweight title bout but the Brazilian refused to fight before the end of the year. He is recovering from knee surgery so it was down to Moreno’s former foe Deiveson to step up and take the opportunity for the title bout. Pantoja has a record of 24-5-0 and has previously beaten Moreno in the year 2018 via decision.

As far as Moreno is concerned he has a record of 19-5-2 in his career. His latest win against Deiveson puts him above the Brazilian given their first meeting was a draw in 2020. Deiveson has a record of 20-2-1 in his career and has finally got the trilogy he wanted. Are you excited about this fight?
