"Camp went well. I sparred with top guys, and I feel strong. I am ready and in shape," said Conwell. "Patrick Day is an OK fighter. I know I can beat him."

Day, who as mentioned above has fought and beat top opposition, should be a good test for Conwell and give a good indiction where the former Olympian is at in his young career.

"I feel this is a step up fight. I can compare to his other opponents. I am looking to better what they did against him. This fight will show who I am, and this is the 1st step to make a statement. Tune in on October 12th, I am going to put on a great show and get the win."

Jones is coming off a six-round unanimous decision over Matias Agustin Arriagada on June 29th in Providence, Rhode Island.


Manriquez has a record of 7-8-1 with three knockouts. Jones will be the 8th undefeated opponent that the Houston native has faced. Manriquez has a win over previously undefeated Oscar Moreno (7-0).

"Training camp was great, I am ready to put on a great performance and get a knockout on Saturday night," said Jones. "This will be my 4th fight in seven months, and I am continuously learning all the small things that come with the pro game. I know Manriquez likes to come forward, and from what I have seen, he is tough. Expect a great performance from me and I just want all my fans to follow me at @OthaJones3rd"

Jones was 129 lbs. at Friday's weigh-in. Manriquez was 130 lbs.

Jones is promoted by Matchroom Boxing.
