CHANN THONSON

“I am feeling great and very confident. I just finished my second Las Vegas training camp where everything is very intense and prepared me well for this fight. Sparring got aggressive and a little heated at times, like a doghouse which is different than the guy I am fighting on Friday – he is a little flatfooted and not as aggressive. Having all of that intensity coming my way has made me really sharp and stay on my toes. I have always been a boxer first but in this camp we utilized a lot of walking guys down so it made my power blossom and I plan to show that along with the boxing skills.

“The first time I sparred with those guys it felt like holding jackhammer for the first time and being like ‘oh, snap.’ It was a little overwhelming. The second time sparring I went in with a different attitude and was able to embrace the jackhammer and hang with the guys using mental toughness. It showed me what it was like to be a champion. It was an amazing experience.

“I don’t fight for the knockout. I am not going to go in there swinging, but this fight I want to knock him out. That’s what I am going to get, the KO, behind my boxing of course. I have nine knockouts, and knocked out an undefeated fighter two fights ago, which was impressive to me, but I never utilized my power as I have in this camp. It’s going to be very interesting to me – if it goes past three, I will be surprised, but not a good surprised.”

ESNEIKER CORREA, Los Teques, Venezuela, 15-2-1, 13 KO’s

“Cuevas he is a fighter and I cannot underestimate him. I know he is coming to fight and if he comes to fight hard, he is going to get knocked out. If he just wants to box, I win by decision. I come from the streets of Venezuela and had nothing. This is a life changer fight for me. A win for me will change everything. It will take me to the next level financially then I can take care of my family.”

DERRIECK “Pretty Boy” CUEAVAS, Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, 23-1-1, 15 KO’s

“I don’t know much about my opponent, but I know he’s a tough fighter and he comes to fight and I’ll be ready for whatever he brings. I have not fought for a while – it’s been two years and I want to make the most of this opportunity. I had been soft training for two years then going hard and more disciplined the last five months training and sparing with Olympians and top guys. On Friday you will see a KO from Cuevas because I am excited, and I am ready, and it will be over in two or three. After the KO I want the big names and big fights.”

TREVOR THONSON, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 6-0, 6 KOs

Trevor is originally from Quebec. He fell behind his brother career wise due to the birth of his child. When she became two and a half, he returned to boxing and ramped it up. “I won a few tournaments in Quebec, and since I am of Jamaican descent, I got my citizenship and went there to train for the national team. I won the nationals there then waited two years for the pandemic to die down for the Olympics to happen. It didn’t die down so I went to Miami to train with my brother. Now I am 6-0 coming off a beautiful win with my best knockout to date.

“Now I train at Split T in Las Vegas, been out there for 5 months getting the work in. Vegas is one of the highest level of training camps because many world champions and highly ranked fighters are there.

“My opponent is a southpaw so I just have to be a little bit smarter and adjust and I think we can get him out of there in 4 or 5. I’ll be looking to hit him with a straight right or a left hook but my best punch is the overhand right – right over the top down the middle. Once the distance is there, it will land and it will be over.”
