Mora signs to fight Augustus! just received a phone call from Adrian Mora, who reports that he has just signed a contract to fight Emmanuel Augustus on May 17, 2006 at Foxwoods Resort and Casino in Connecticut. The fight is scheduled for broadcast on ESPN2's Wednesday night fights.  Mora, 15-0-1 as a pro, used to squeeze his nearl;y six-foot frame down to the lightweight limit of 135 pounds, but recently has fought at junior welterweight. The draw on his record came against Juan Carlos Rubio. At 32-26-2, the enigmatic Augustus is a skilled but frustrating boxer whose poor decisions have cost him on his pro record.
