"I'm ready for this challenge, I know Valcárcel very well.  When he made his pro-debut I was 16 years old with 80 amateurs fights. I have been training really hard for this and will not waste my time. After I beat Valcárcel I will be ready for Jorge "Travieso" Arce", Jayson said.

Meanwhile his experienced opponent Carlos Valcárcel said "I am really focused for this fight. I really am!  The 2 defeats that I have as a pro were because of my bad discipline.  Other than those 2 mistakes, I am still undefeated.
