“We’re both in a similar spot, we fight in the same division, both have a loss, and both are signed with Thompson Boxing Promotions. This is a great fight for the fans, but I am going to show that I am better than him. I’ll be the one advancing to bigger and better opportunities after I win this fight.”

“I want to be a world champion badly, and winning this bout against a game opponent, would be the first step towards getting a chance at a world title next year. The road won’t be easy, so I’m fully prepared to make all the sacrifices need to get to the top. I will be a world champion soon.”
On fighting on 3.2.1 Boxing.
“I am excited to be on this card. My last fight was in Florida the same weekend Ruben Villa fought for the world title, and it feels good to be on Thompson Boxing card since the organization has always treated me well. I’m going all out for the fans as I’ll be letting my hands fly. I want to close out this year with an incredible performance.”
