Cuban-born teenager Enmanuel "The Alpha" Guerra is developing quickly ahead of his fourth professional assignment. Although the fight card will likely not go forward on March 20th due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 19 year-old welterweight continues to work out with trainer Jorge Rubio as he prepares to face Antoine Elerson (4-25-3) at Gulfstream Park, Hallandale. Having already reeled off a trio of victories since joining the paid ranks, Guerra is ready to showcase more improvement. Guerra said: “I’ve been getting bigger physically. I’m a lot stronger and a lot faster. Mentally, I’m more mature and relaxed too. I’m training three times a day. I’m boxing in the morning with Jorge Rubio, then in the afternoon I go running or swimming, then later in the evening I do a bit of physical conditioning.
He continued, "I’ve been working on defense with Jorge and improving that all the time. I’m looking to find the right power shots at the right time too. Body work is important. Since I started with Jorge, my boxing has gone from 20 to 100 in terms of technical things. As a result, my power has improved because the greater the technique, the greater the power. He has helped me mentally and he helps me focused. He’s always there making sure I continue to push forward.”
