D. Magdaleno: Antonio Davis Won't Last The Distance

By Ryan Burton recently caught up with undefeated super featherweight Diego Magdaleno (22-0 8 KOs) who faces veteran Antonio Davis (29-7 13 KOs) on August 4th at the Texas Station Casino in North Las Vegas, NV.

The Las Vegas resident last fought in March when he stopped Fernando Beltran in 7 rounds.  Magdaleno expects to put on another great performance against Davis in a fight that will be televised by Telefutura.

"This is my year and it is time to shine.  I am always working hard in the gym and I always come into the ring in shape.  This is going to be a big year for me but I take it one fight at a time and Davis is next," Magdaleno told

Magdaleno said that his approach is to always take it one fight at a time and to not look too far ahead but hopes to get one step closer to a title fight.

"I have to get through this fight before I go to the next fight.  I take it one at a time but I hope that I can get a shot at a title after this fight," Magdaleno stated before offering a prediciton on his fight against Davis.  "One thing I will say is that the fight
won't go the distance."

When Diego punches he punches with some authority and looks like he got some pop in them but idk why his KO ratio is so low. Latey hes been on a KO streak tho. Maybe he found the secret juice…
