The three judges scored the match 116-112, 118-110 and 118-110 for the Panamanian fighter.

``This is the result of hard work in the gym and the hard work of my trainers,'' Moreno said. ``Urina is a heavy-hitting opponent, but tonight in the ring my physical condition was better.''

Moreno received a cut on the right cheek that caused him to bleed after the seventh round, but the 28-year-old landed better shots and avoided most of the punches by his Colombian opponent.

``It's hard to fight Moreno, even more so at home,'' Urina said.

Moreno improved 34-2-1. Urina fell to 24-3.

Urina launched one of his few successful attacks in the ninth round, connecting with a left hook to the face, but the 27-year-old couldn't follow up with significant additional punches.
