It was a tiring but positive flight back to the United States for Watsonville boxer Carina Moreno.

Oh, she also brought home some hardware.

Moreno defeated Susi Kentikian by split decision on Saturday to win the WBA Flyweight Championship.

In the cold of Germany, Moreno received two scores of 96-94 in favor of her. One judge went 97-93 in favor of Kentikian (29-2).

The win ended several streaks for Moreno. She ended a two-match losing skid as she improved to 3-2 in her past five outings. It is also the first time she has won on foreign soil; three of her four career losses had come outside of the United States.
