COCKY HERRERA SAYS HE FOUGHT BETTER OPPONENTS THAN PAGARA


PhilBoxing.com



Herrera.
Cocky Aaron “The Jewel” Herrera isn’t impressed with WBO International light welterweight champion Jason Pagara who defends his title against the Mexican at the Waterfront Hotel and Casino in Cebu on Saturday in the top-notch “Pinoy Pride” series 20th edition presented by ALA Promotions in cooperation with ABS-CBN.

The fights will be telecast on Sunday at 10:15 a.m. on Channel 2.

During a get-together with the Cebu sports media on Tuesday, Herrera who has an impressive record of 25 wins with 17 knockouts and only one loss, said he had seen some of Pagara’s fights on YouTube and was not particularly impressed.

It will be Herrera’s first fight outside his native Mexico and indicated he had no problem with the humid weather since he comes from Yucatan which is much the same.

Herrera trained hard in his hometown and said he is ready even though he hasn’t fought this year, pointing out that he is mentally and physically ready for Pagara who is ranked No. 4 by the WBO.

Like most visiting fighters, Herrera said he is prepared to go twelve rounds if he has to but would grab the opportunity to score a knockout if he sees a chance. In his last ring appearance on November 3, 2012, Herrera scored a stunning 1st round knockout of Jorge Pimentel, showing that his eight round unanimous decision loss to Fernando Garcia on July 21 last year had not affected him by scoring a devastating knockout over the experienced “Tigre” Pimentel, catching Pimentel with some solid combinations before taking him out with a hook to the liver.

Herrera also won by a 1st round TKO over eight-year veteran Zaid “The Terminator” Zavaleta on April 21, 2012.

Mexican media described the win as spectacular even as Herrera said he got the expected result through intense preparation and training.

The 24 year old Pagara who has a record of 30-2 with 19 knockouts is coming off an impressive 1st round knockout of previously undefeated Miguel Antoine of Barbados on October 20, 2012 after winning the vacant WBO International title by a 6th round TKO over rugged Mexican Rosbel Montoya.
