Carlos Cuadras Hopes To Fast Track His Way To WBC Title Shot

Former WBC super flyweight champion, Carlos Cuadras (36-3-1, 27 KOs) was at the WBC`s  "Coffee on Tuesday," discussing and figuring out his upcoming fight on August 18 against KO exponent Ricardo "El Matematico"  Nunez (29-7, 23 KOs), for the vacant WBC Latin title at the Coliseo, Mexico City. 

Cuadras has lost three of his last four fights, with decision losses to McWilliams Arroyo, Roman Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada.

He recently went through rehab, after admitting to a substance abuse problem.
Stronger and more comfortable in this division Carlos, says  his approach has completely changed, with an ever greater motivation,  because it is not only about winning titles or victories, but about making history and leaving a legacy in the sport. 

With the goal set for the bantamweight green and gold belt, which is currently vacant, beaded Carlos  who`s says he`s already virtually reached fight weight, summed it up by confirming that he`s training hard saying he`ll be dishing out the medicine... waving his vaunted right hand.
