Humberto Soto Expects a Tough Scrap With Sasaki

By Alfredo Jaime Gomez, notifight.com

Humberto Soto, the lightweight champion of the World Boxing Council, is going old school with his training for the upcoming fight with Japan's Motoki Sasaki, to be held on June 25. Soto is doing a lot of running every day alongside his teammates at the Otomi Ceremonial Center in Temoaya, Mexico. He expects another hard fight with a lot of action.

With enthusiasm, Humberto said: "I came to Temoaya for 20 days and I am very calm. My agent, 'Cañitas' Lozada, told me that they only need to set the location [for the fight] but it could be in Mexico City. My opponent is tough like all Japanese boxers. He is aggressive, he's never been knocked out, and very similar to Urbano Antillón, but he won't take away my dream thanks to the great work that we are doing in Temoaya."

Soto is getting to be like a lot of belt holders these days, content with fighting second-rate opposition so they can hold onto their paper belt

I'm so sure that he is similar to Urbano Antillon. :lol1: Soto should have given us that fight on the undercard of Pac-Mosley instead of this fight with the Japanese.

Yeah he needs to stop fighting the guys who work the drive though at filibertos

What is your dream Mr. Soto? To continue to fight nobodies for the rest of your mediocre career?
