How well do you know BJ Flores?
"I've seen a couple of his fights. He's a smart fighter who moves well. I'll take care to do my best work. I absolutely want to prove that I´m the best cruiserweight in the world."
After the fight with Giacobbe Fragomeni, there was a pause in your career. Could this affect your performance?
"Although I have not fought in several months, I have not been totally inactive, I keep in very good shape. Last year I had two tough fights against Chakhiev and Fragomeni, so I took a well deserved rest. It is possible that next year I move up to the heavyweight division, but for now I want to focus on making another defense of my title ."
