Below is what “El Bandido” had to say about his upcoming bout:
“Training camp is important. You always have to push yourself because fights are going to get rough. How you trained is how you’re going to fight.
“I know my boxing style is a style fans like. I think that if I give them a good fight, and I keep working like I have been, I can become, and would like to be one of those boxers that are representative of Mexico.
“We are two action fighters, we’re Mexicans. When two Mexicans get in the ring, you know they will put on a show. There will be two fighters that will leave everything in the ring.”
