Sullivan Barrera expects bounce back performance on Kovalev-Alvarez undercard and wants the winner
Sat, 21 Apr 2018
MIAMI, FLORIDA - Light heavyweight contender Sullivan "Sully B" Barrera is back in training camp armed with a new fight date and a fresh attitude.
The former Cuban amateur standout admits that not much went right in his March 3rd loss to Dmitry Bivol but chalks it up to an off night and said that it was a learning experience.
Barrera is back with his team but has also added a sports psychologist to his squad in an effort to make sure a repeat of March 3rd doesn't happen.
"I feel great. I know that was just one bad night. I am not worried about the past and only looking ahead," Barrera explained.
The plan is for Barrera to return to the ring sometime in the summer on the Sergey Kovalev-Eleider undercard and he hopes to fight the winner next.
"I think the fans know that I always want to fight the best out there. After this fight I want another big fight. My goal is to fight whoever wins between Kovalev and Alvarez," said Barrera.
"Boxing is like sex. You can be the best lover in the world but sometimes you have an off night. My fiancee knows I am the best even if I don't perform as well one night. I want to get back in the ring and show the world my best again."
