He'll fight against Reyes Sánchez (24-5-2, 14KOs) in another defence of his WBC Silver title.
Massa registered a svelte 143.2 pounds after an exacting stint in Los Angeles, supervised by his trainer Luis Garcia.
“It has been a very tough training camp indeed! I've gone through some really hard physical and boxing preparation, but it'll be worth it! I feel strong and ready to fight, to conclusively prove I’m ready to fight for the world title”.
But Massa is astutely refusing to underestimate his rival, who's a tall order! “I know Reyes is a good fighter, it will be a tough fight because he will also undoubtedly be in great shape too.
"So, I absolutely need to be focused and listen to my corner!”
All the hard work has already been put in, so it's now a question of light sessions and maintaining optimum condition, to be ready for the official weigh-in ceremony.
Roberto “Massa” Ortiz will head the card held at the Gimnasio Morelos in Mexico City on October 19th.
