Herring of Cincinnati, Ohio has a perfect mark of 14-0 with eight knockouts knows that a big effort will begin to put him on the radar in the 135-pound division.
“Camp is going great. I am on weight five days before the fight, so I am just maintaining now,” said Herring, who trained mostly in his hometown of Cincinnati but finished at the Headbangers Gym in Washington, D.C.
Herring has done some homework on his opponent and has some good things to say about his foe,
“Flores is a tall and rangy and has some knockouts. I am going to play it straight, maybe feel him out for a few rounds and work my gameplan. This is a good step for me,”
This will be the best exposure for Herring, who will look to shine on the national stage.
“This is my first PBC card and to headline it is a great honor. In the same sense, I look at the fight as just another fight and I am very focused for the task at hand.”
Because he had a terrific amateur pedigree, Herring believes that with a strong performance, he is not that far away from getting himself in the mix for big fights in the lightweight division.
“I am looking for the fights against the top-fifteen guys. I am have the ability, the pedigree to compete with all of those contenders. First things first, I have to win on Tuesday and I want everyone to tune in to this great night of fights.”
