Sergio Mora “I hope Bob Arum and Kelly Pavlik will do right by the contract and give me this fight”

He was the inaugural champion of the boxing series, “The Contender” who earned his way to the WBC light middleweight title, and now Sergio Mora 21-1-1 (5) wants the chance to prove that he is the best 160-pound fighter in the business. But will he get the opportunity?

“The Latin Snake” who hails from Los Angeles came to the limelight by defeating Peter Manfredo Jr. in the finals of NBC’s “The Contender”. Mora has defeated the likes of Ishe Smith, Jesse Brinkley, and defeated Vernon Forrest to earn him the WBC title.

Mora lost in the rematch against Forrest and has not seen any ring action since doing so September of 2008. Mora had signed a deal to face the WBO/WBC middleweight title holder Kelly Pavlik this past June, but Pavlik pulled out due to an infection. So where does that leave Sergio Mora? At this time and place, he doesn’t even know.

Read on to see what Mora had to say about the match-up against Kelly Pavlik as well a touching on a few other topics, enjoy.

Benny Henderson Jr.
You were slated to face Kelly Pavlik this past June, but as we know Kelly pulled out due to an infection, so any news on when this bout may take place?

Sergio Mora
You know what I have no idea, the bottom line is that I am still waiting. The contract has been signed.

So they haven’t said anything about the rescheduling of this fight?

Nothing, I am still waiting.

What happens if this fight doesn’t take place?

Well, I will have some problems with my own promoter because they are the ones who have kept me inactive this long, so I am going to have some problems there. We had a contract and Pavlik pulled out of the fight with a staff infection.

Maybe I am hearing it wrong but you are saying there is no telling when we will see Sergio Mora back in the ring?

Not at all, the funny part my contract is up in October. So I don’t know what is going to happen then, but, I am prepared to take legal action. I hope it won’t be a legal mess but right now I am just waiting and hoping that Bob Arum and Kelly Pavlik will do right by their word and their contract and give me the fight.

If you could send a message out to Bob Arum and Kelly Pavlik regarding this fight, what would it be?

I would tell Bob to really think about this opportunity for me because he gave me a contract and made me a promise and ultimately told me that he would give this former champ a shot at the middleweight title. Ok, so now I want him to keep his word. As far as Pavlik to him and his team, he doesn’t have to look for anymore fights because I am here to give him the greatest fight of his career. Something similar to Bernard Hopkins, and we know what Hopkins did.

What do you feel Sergio Mora means to the 160-pound division?

Well, I only had two fights under 160, my entire career has been at 160 ands people think that I am moving up in weight to fight Pavlik but I am not, I am a natural 160-pound fighter, and when people see me in person, they realize I am bigger than what I look on TV. I am definitely one of the top ten easily, the top dogs in the middleweight division are Kelly Pavlik and Arthur Abraham, I understand that, but aside from them I can easily beat anybody in the top ten, including Kelly Pavlik. I think he started realizing that I would give him some problems; we knew each other from the amateurs. I hope they keep their word on the contract for this opportunity.

In closing of this interview, is there anything you would like to add to this interview?

The one thing I want to say, I hope this fight will happen as soon as possible, I have wanted this fight, I know I can beat Kelly Pavlik, and it will do good things for my career. I cannot wait to shock the world and get the opportunity, quit denying.

I would like to thank Brad Cooney of
