On fighting again in Fresno, CA


“I feel good I’ve fought in Fresno before on 4 occasions in the past while being signed to my promoter, Top Rank. It’s great to be able to put on a performance for my family and friends. I’m just focused on the job at hand and what I need to do that night.”


On his opponent Andrew Cancio


“What I know is Andrew Cancio comes forward and throw punches in high volume. He’s hungry for a shot and he has fought some top names like Ronny Rios, Rocky Juarez, and Joseph Diaz Jr. I am expecting Andrew Cancio to come forward and give it his best since this is his last shot.”


Fighting on Jose Ramirez’s undercard


“I’ve known Jose Ramirez since the amateurs and we both fought each other as well [audible laughing]. He is a good friend and a good fighter. I feel blessed that I’m on the same card as Jessie Magdaleno as well who I know personally. It’s going to be a great card and a great show of fireworks that night.”



On defending his WBC Continentals Americas title
