"If people think that I'm coming here as a stepping stone, then they're totally wrong because I'm coming prepared mentally and physically to knock out Yves Ulysse Jr," said Ismael Barroso. "I have demonstrated in the past that when people try to bring me as an opponent, I have come out victorious. This fight will not be the exception."
