Arturo "Fuerte" Badillo (21-1, 20KOs) is hoping to shock the super flyweight champion of the World Boxing Association, Hugo Cazares (34-6-2, 24KOs), on Saturday night in Mazatlan. Cazares is one of the biggest punchers at his weight, but Badillo is confident in his own power and believes there is more than enough to knock the champion out.
Badillo said - "I concentrated for 45 days in the high altitude of Temoaya, and it really built my confidence to take the fight to Cazares. We did an extraordinary job with my coach, Luis Roman. I feel strong and happy, as I had never worked outside of Tijuana, and I feel the benefit of going to the mountains. I sparred for over 100 rounds.
"I'm good at everything. I bring good speed, this fight I'm going to dedicate it to everyone who believed in me. I expect an upset. I have 21 wins, and only one defeat against Ronald Berrera. I knocked out 20 of my opponents. My past victories give me the confidence to impose myself."
