Mexican boxer Miguel "Mickey" Roman arrived in Argentina and said: "I will be a locomotive. Barros will not have a moment of rest and I will knock him out. "
The native of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, said he's ready for Saturday's match in Mendoza, Argentina, where he will try to overthrow the WBA's "regular" featherweight champion of the World Boxing Association, Jonathan Barros, although Roman confessed that his promoter, Reginaldo Kuchle, feels a deep respect for Carlos Monzon and Carlos Gardel.
"I have always faced great boxers and my defeats, some of them I walked away with my head held high, because I'm not like many fighters who take it to heart, but I have to say that I have also been robbed," said the Mexican gladiator. "For me the defeats have been good experiences, because I learned from them and have helped me become better. No doubt I'm going to look for the knockout that all the time."
With a professional record of 37-7 with 25 knockouts, the idol of Ciudad Juárez, arrived in Argentina with an optimal state of mind and security that he will become the new world champion.
