My strength and conditioning is right on point and I feel stronger going into this fight. These final days of cutting weight will be smooth because of all the hard work I put in this camp.”
On his matchup with Abraham Montoya:
"Montoya is a very tough opponent who has never been stopped. He’s been in the ring with some notable names, so I know he has the mental capacity to fight under the bright lights. I will have to make the proper adjustments to get him out of there. I’m prepared to go the distance, but the goal will be to knock him out.”
On what a win will do for his career:
"A victory against Montoya will put me in position to fight a big name and catapult me into 10-round bouts. The super featherweight division stacked with talent and a win gets me closer to fight them all. In due time I’ll be knocking on the door of a world title shot, which is the ultimate goal at the end of the day.”
On fighting at home in Las Vegas:
"Fighting on this card means a lot to me because I have so many of my family and friends that will be in attendance watching. My last three fights have been knockouts, with the last two being here in Vegas. I looking to keep this knockout streak alive here in my hometown. I want to thank my promoter Top Rank for putting me on this card.”
