Bronco Billy on training camp preparations….
“Training camp has been tough this time around. I’ve been working really hard to get in the best shape of my life. My trainer Rafael Garcia Jr. has me doing some out of the box training methods that has been real beneficial to my boxing style. We finished up our last days of sparring last week. I’ll be ready to bring it on Friday.
Bronco Billy gives his thoughts on his bout with Domingos….
“I know Domingos is going to be looking for the knockout as am I, so we’ll see who lands the first bomb. Like in all my fights, I’ll be looking to end the fight early. If I need to go some extra rounds, I’m ok with that, as I’m in good boxing shape. He’s going to taste some my power, that’s for sure.
Bronco Billy comments on defending his WBC titles….
“Defending my WBC LATIN AMERICAN and FECARBOX titles is a pretty big deal for me. It’s my leverage to compete at the top level as I try to crack the top ten in the WBC. Right now I’m at #17, but I plan to move up with each fight this year.
Bronco Billy discusses being a 50-year old heavyweight contender….
“At this age I feel stronger then I was when I was younger. It’s that old man strength I guess you can call it. I’m smarter, wiser and more discipline at this stage in my career. I have a goal to become the heavyweight champion of the world and motivation is greater than ever. A lot of these top contenders are shying away from fighting me. I just want to earn my opportunity and fight the best.
