On his recent training camp:
“I’m in great shape as I just fought in April, so training camp has just continued on from my last fight. I’ve been sparring with a lot of good fighters and my coach Jeff Flotree has been pushing me to my limit. This will be my first 10-rounder and I’m confident I can go the distance if I have too.
On his matchup with Gadwin Roas:
“Rosa and I are at a crossroad in our careers. We both need to win to take everything to the next level. I know he has a lot of power, so I’ll be looking to counter all his power punches. I believe I have the superior boxing skills to come out on top. This will be a very difficult fight, but I’m convinced I’ll be victorious.”
On fighting for the WBA Regular World Title:
“It’s this type of opportunity that a fighter always dreams of when we first start boxing. I’ve been waiting for a big fight and now its here. I going to take full advantage of this moment. I want to thank my promoter Thompson Boxing for always having my back. Kenny and Alex a great people and it will be a special moment to bring home this belt for them.”
On making his televised debut on Telemundo:
“Telemundo has been a staple network for boxing, giving us fighters a platform to showcase our talent to the masses for many years. The fans will see me at my best and I’m looking forward to a great night of boxing. This is my time to shine.”
