Miguel Vazquez: I Won't Change My Style For Bey

By Edward Chaykovsky

IBF lightweight champion Miguel Vazquez (34-3, 13KOs) has no intention of changing his style for the upcoming defense against Mickey Bey (20-1-1, 10KOs), taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas as part of the September 13th undercard to the rematch between Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana.

Vazquez's style is not pretty, but it's made him a very tough fighter to beat. During his title reign, which began in 2010, Vazquez beat an assortment of top contenders and undefeated challengers.

"No, this is my style. My style is the style that took me to become a world champion, and I don't plan to make any drastic changes to my style. This is why I've maintained and been victorious. I may modify a little bit more aggressive attack, but again, this is the style that's kept me here," Vazquez said.

Vazquez created his style by taking teachings of his father and combining them with the Cuban style of boxing.

"I'll say it started off with my father, that he started teaching me the craft, and from there on I learned from the Cubans the art of boxing, to hit and not be hit, and now currently with my current trainer I've learned and picked up new things. It's a style that's got me there. I go in there, hit, don't be hit, and I'm blessed by God," Vazquez said.

After Vasquez schools Bey I want him to move up to 140 and take care of business there.

I smell a fix with Bey getting the W.
