Greg Leon: How has everything gone in preparation for your October 24th return vs. Luis Fernando Molina (8-5-1)? What can we expect to see from you on fight night? Jude Franklin: "Everything has been going great, I just can't wait to get back in the ring in front of my hometown fans and put on a show. I didn't have the result I wanted in my last fight, I feel I did enough to win, but I kept it too close and I'm not going to allow that to happen again." Greg Leon: What do you know about your opponent? Jude Franklin: "Not too much, I know he comes to fight and he's never been knocked out so he knows how to survive."
GL: Are you looking to become the first guy to stop him?
JF: "That would be nice, but I'm not getting into the ring looking for the knockout. I'm going in there to win one round at a time and if the knockout comes it comes."
GL: Will this be your last six rounder?
JF: "100%. I think this was going to be an eight but they had to cut it back because there's too many fights on the show or something."
GL: What are your goals for 2020?
JF: "To take care whoever they put in front of me, keep learning, keep improving, and yeah, getting some national TV time at some point next year would be nice also."
GL: As long as you keep winning I'm sure that's coming.
JF: "Me too."
GL: Is there anybody you feel would be the perfect fight to springboard your career to the next level?
JF: "I leave that to my manager and trainer Elmo Serrano and promoter Lou DiBella. My job is to take care of business when the bell rings and that's all I'm focusing on right now."
GL: CLosing thoughts for the fans.
JF: "Come out to Generoso Pope Complex [in Brooklyn, NY] on October 24th. It's going to be a great night of New York boxing and I'm coming to put on a show for all my fans."
