Cesar Seda is confident that after his return on Aug. 19 in Ponce, his handlers will secure him another title shot at 115 pounds and does not rule out a rematch with Argentine champion Omar Narvaez, the reigning king of the WBO, who dealt the Puerto Rican boxer his first loss as a pro a few months ago.
"It was a very good experience and I did not expect that kind of fight. I went out to win round by round but the referee began to take off points because he said I was supposedly hitting him low. My mind was racing and I thought I had to kill him. I started slow and you saw what happened. But I want to be a champion at that weight and I'll fight Narvaez again," he said.
Seda, with a record of 20-1 and 15 knockouts, admitted the Narvaez fight gave him a lot of experience.
"And I think if it had been in Puerto Rico it would have been different. I know he was feeling my punches and was complaining about something. I was aware I was doing well but the referee did not appreciate it. And I hurt my mental state because I kept thinking that I was going to get disqualified. I was a little down because my dream is to become world champion. Now I'm hungrier and I'm going to show that I have the talent," he said.
"I'm focused on this fight on the 19th, fighting in my home and not thinking I would steal the fight. I'm not focused on the knockout. I'll be ready for whatever happens in the ring. I am calm and I will win round by round."
