Hernandez took the time to talk about his camp, his July 12 matchup and more as he nears fight night. Here is what Hernandez had to say:
On making his television debut on FS1 and FOX Deportes…
“This is the opportunity I’ve been waiting for since I turned professional.  I know I have to perform at a high level to prove I’m worthy of more TV dates.  FS1 is where a lot of fights are on these days so I’m very appreciative to the PBC and FOX for giving me a chance to showcase my talent.  Everyone can expect to see me go to war, and I’m going to leave everything in the ring, that you can guarantee.”
On his current training camp…
“This has been a wild camp.  I got great sparring at Wild Card with Hugo Centeno and a few others.  I had to travel outside of my area to get the sparring I needed to prepare me for this fight.  I’m in the best shape of my life at the moment and I’m looking to be peaking on fight night.  Everything is perfect right now.”
On facing undefeated fighter Thomas Hill…
“I know he’s a tall fighter with really good boxing skills, so I’ll be prepared for his movement.  He’s undefeated as well so I know it’s going to be a great fight. These are the fights that take you to the next level.  One of us is going to advance in their career and the other will suffer a setback.  I’m coming to win.”
On his relationship with his father/trainer Joey Hernandez…
“My dad has been with me since the beginning.  We know how to work with each other.  He’s made a lot of sacrifices to get me where I’m at today.  Of course we butt heads sometimes but at the end of the day, I know he’s got my back.  We are on this journey together and I’m grateful for all that he’s done for me.  We are a great team.”
On the importance of staying undefeated…
“It’s very important for my career to remain undefeated.  A win will keep me in the mix as far as fighting on big cards, especially on TV.  This is a major crossroad in my career and the time is now for me to take it to the next level.  I need to win this bout and march up the rankings, guaranteeing me more big fights.”
