Photos: Fernando Montiel Ripped and Ready To Return

By Rafael Soto

Los Mochis, Sin - After an intensive seven-week training camp in the gym owned by his family in Los Mochis, triple world champion Fernando "Kochulito" Montiel is ready to return on Saturday June 25 in the capital of Sinaloa, Culiacan. Montiel and his team have already traveled to the location of the fight.

Montiel (44-3-2, 34 KOs) ended the strong phase of his training in the gym of the "Cochules" which is run by his father, Manuel Montiel, and on Saturday he faces a former world champion, Venezuelan Nehomar Cermeno (20-3-0, 12 KOs), in a 10-round bout scheduled to take place in the super bantamweight division.

Montiel, a former world champion at flyweight, super flyweight and bantamweight, arrived on Monday to Culiacan, where he plans to take part in several promotional commitments during the week.

The fight will be promoted by Zanfer at the Estadio Banorte, which is going to be broadcast by TV Azteca. Montiel returns after February's shocking two round defeat to Philippines boxer Nonito Donaire.

"Fernando is a warrior and he is always looking to fight the best and returning from a loss, Fernando requested an opponent with the class of Cermeno. He is well prepared and willing to put on a great show for the public," said Eduardo Montiel, brother and co-trainer.

Montiel is a class act and a decent boxer. One of my favourites and i hope he does well.

Montiel will be a champion again. He was on another level compared to most of the fighters he fought. Only problem was that Donaire was on a level above his.

Montiel is a fighter I like, I wish him well and hope he can bag another title, it may be a hard road back to that though.

[QUOTE=fceeviper;10722524]I hope he can return strong after the huge knock out. Oh, I saw on Real Sport With Brian Gumbo that the BALCO founder "The Barry Bonds guy" Victor Conte is working as a nutritionist for Nonito Donaire! :eek: Dare…
