The 19-year old from Brownsville, TX, is hoping to put on an electrifying performance. Here's what he to say about his upcoming televised bout and his current training camp:
On his recent training camp:
"I've been spending a lot of time training in San Antonio, TX, getting good sparring with all the pros out there. Rick Nunez, who has been working closely with my head trainer and father Rudy Juarez, has been a big help to me and my dad. We all work together with the common goal to be the best. I've had a great camp and we are entering the final days of training before we head out to California."
On his upcoming matchup with Bonds:
"I don't know much about Bonds except that he's an older fighter from El Paso who has recently fought. I'm going to press the action and dictate the pace. I'll make adjustments as the fight goes on. I really want to make a statement by getting the KO. If I get him hurt, he's going down."
On making his second appearance on FS1:
"It's very exciting to be fighting on FS1 once again. The exposure is unbelievable, and I want to thank my management team and FS1 for the opportunity. Now its time for me to put on a great performance and entertain those watching on television."
On fighting for his hometown of Brownsville, Texas:
"I love my hometown of Brownsville, Texas. I have all the support from my people out here. My goal is to one day headline a big fight in this town, a world title fight to be exact. I know I have a long way to go, but I have my mind set on getting to the top. I'm taking the people of Brownsville with me every step of the way."
