Alejandro Sanabria Confident of Beating Rocky Juarez

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Super featherweight Alejandro Sanabria (26-1, 21KOs) is feeling confident as he heads closer to the biggest fight of his career. On Saturday at Auditorio Ernesto Rufo in Baja California, Mexico, Sanabria will face tough veteran Rocky Juarez (28-7, 20KOs) for the vacant WBC Continental Americas super featherweight title. Juarez has lost his last three bouts, against Jorge Linares, Jason Litzau and Chris John. A loss to Sanabria could be the occurence that puts Juarez on the brink of retirement.

Sanabria has been asked by a lot of people if he's being used as a took to provide Juarez with a good victory. He's not worried about that and feels extra motivation as the underdog.

"We finished the toughest stage of our preparation. We just have to keep in shape and I have no problem with the weight. I watched his fights on video against Jorge Linares," Hyena Barrios and Juan Manuel Marquez. He is an aggressive fighter and very strong. It's wise to box and not to stand in front of him where he he has the ability to counter and do damage," Sanabria told Jose Soriano.

"A lot of people think I'm a victim, being used as cannon fodder and that's an advantage. I feel motivated and confident because of the great training that I had. It was one of the best training camps of my entire career. Juarez has fought former world champions and considered to be in the big league, so I have to take advantage and win."

WTF happened to Rocky Juarez. He took Barrera to a SD and now he's on the brink of retirement. Is Ronnie Sheilds still training him? If so, he should probably get a new trainer because that clearly hasn't worked.
