Former world champion Sergio Mora is still looking for one more fight before he officially calls it quits.
Mora had publicly stated in the past that he wants to have one more boxing fight, but wants to make sure he is fully prepared for it. Mora recently revealed on Twitter that he was actually offered a chance to have his last fight on the undercard of the April 20 Premier Boxing Champions card from Carson, California. That card will be headlined by Danny Garcia vs. Adrian Granados.
It would have been a 10-round fight, but no opponent was mentioned. Mora declined the fight saying that he has other obligations at the moment and wants to make sure he is fully prepared and focused on his retirement fight.
To my fans, I was offered a 10 rounder on #GarciaGranados card but decided not to do it; camp wasn’t right. I have other obligations now & want to give my final fight my full attention & effort. #OneMore --— Sergio Mora (@TheLatinSnake_) March 20, 2019
For the past few months, Mora had been focused more on his broadcast career, being a regular part of the DAZN announcing team where he served as a color commentator for several top boxing fights. Most recently, Mora worked the March 15 Matchroom Boxing USA card on DAZN live from Philadelphia with the card being headlined by Tevin Farmer vs. Jono Carroll for the IBF super featherweight title.
The 38-year-old Mora had not fought since a split decision win over Alfredo Angulo in April 2018. That fight was Mora's first since being stopped by Daniel Jacobs in the seventh round in 2016 with the WBA "Regular" middleweight title on the line. Mora briefly held the WBC junior middleweight title in 2008 when he defeated Vernon Forrest, but lost the title in a rematch just months later.
