He travels over with his team consisting of coaches Orangel "Memin" Ramos and Oscar Acosta, with Merwin Ramos.
"I have no weight issues, as we are going there at 148 pounds, which is a pound over the division limit," said Avendano. "I want to thank Miguel Acosta and Fernando Angulo, who were helped in my preparation as if they were the ones who were going to fight for a world title and that was nice of them."
