Osaka, Japan - Motivated and confident in his great preparation, Tomas Rojas (34-12, 23KOs) said he is ready to defend his super flyweight title of the World Boxing Council (WBC) on Saturday in Osaka, against local challenger Nobuo "Samurai" Nashiro (14-2, 9KOs). Photos by Zanfer

The fighters were both present for the final news conference that was held at the luxurious Hotel Nikko Osaka, and there was a lot of respect between the two boxers.

"I had a great training camp for over two and a half months. I feel good in this country (Japan) because here is where I won my world championship and I am convinced that the title will return to Mexico, where I received great support from many people , so I dedicate this fight to all the people of Mexico, an the title is coming back no matter what. I'm Mexican, I am a warrior," said Rojas.

For his part, Nobuo Nashiro, who dressed as Samurai said his nickname would in no way spoil an opportunity as great as the one being presented on Saturday. He guaranteed that it will be a great fight.

"I'm going to show in the ring why I'm called the Samurai. I am a warrior who will be pitiless and give everything of myself to achieve victory and become the next world champion," said Nashiro.

American referee Rocky Burke will work what is going to be the 84th fight between a Mexican and a Japanese boxer, with the balance in favor of Mexico with 50 wins, 30 losses, 2 draws and 1 no contest.
