Jaro informed philboxing that Cuello was introduced as the fight winner's next challenger and posed for photos with the protagonists. Martinez told Denver that if he wins, he would be willing to fight him in the Philippines because it was his long-time dream to fight in the country that has for the past few years established a very colourful boxing rivalry with Mexico.
