Torres who is wrapping up his final days of training camp with coach Danny Zamora, gives his thoughts on his upcoming fight with Zamora, fighting in front of fans, and more.
On his recent training camp:
“Camp has been great, I am very motivated, and I feel a big fight is coming soon, so I am staying very focused in the gym. Every opponent I face from this point on will see me as an opportunity to better their career, and I am not going to let that happen. My coach Danny Zamora and I have been sharpening up all my God given tools, and I can see the progress being made. I’m in great shape, ready to do damage.”
On his matchup with Richard Zamora:
“He is tough, he has a predictable style, but that doesn’t make him any less dangerous. He does a lot of good things in the ring that is the sign of a good fighter. He’s been in thee with some good fighters, so I know I must stay sharp in this fight to win.”
On what a win will do for his career:
“I know I am right there for a top-15 ranking and a fight on a major network, and I have a great promoter in Thompson Boxing, so I am very focused on what I need to do on my end. I can feel the big moment coming, but I am not getting ahead of myself. I am very close to the fight I have be waiting for and I am looking to make a statement in this bout.”
On fighting in front of fans for the first time on a Thompson card post pandemic:
“It will be amazing, as I have a lot of friends and family who support my dreams of becoming a world champion and having them in attendance will be extra motivation for me. I love the way Thompson sets up shows for the fans and having them back in attendance will be a great spark for me.”
