On Saturday night blue chip prospect Jessie Magdaleno (15-0) will step in the ring under the guidance of Joel Diaz for the first time. Magdaleno is scheduled to face veteran Jose Luis Araiza (31-8-1) at the Civic Auditorium in Glendale, Calif. The fight will be aired on UniMas.

In a recent conversation with BoxingScene.com, Magdaleno said that everything has been smooth as he as worked along side his brother Diego under the watchful eye of Diaz in Indio, Calif.

"I've been working with him the last 6 weeks. It's been great with all of his experience. He has taught me some new things. Everything we've worked on has been great," Magdaleno stated.

The undefeated bantamweight admitted that he doesn't know a whole lot about his opponent. He does however know his record and knows that he sports an impressive knockout percentage.

"Well I don't know a lot about him but I know I've got a guy coming up who's 30-8 with 24 knockouts. It should be a great fight," said Magdaleno.

Jessie's brother Diego was the first of the brothers to make the switch to working with Diaz. The stable of Diaz also includes WBO welterweight champion Tim Bradley, his brother Julio Diaz and undefeated lightweight Omar Figueroa.

Jessie said that he didn't initially have plans to follow his brother to Indio but admitted that he felt more comfortable training alongside his brother and said that was one key reason for making the switch from Pat Barry who had trained both of the Magdaleno's since their amateur days.

"In the beginning it didn't (have anything to do with it) but all of the talk about my brother got annoying and there is no better place to be than with your own family who works as hard as you. It motivates you to be #1. At the end of the day we needed each other," Magdaleno told BoxingScene.com.
