A few weeks ago, former world champion Carlos Cuadras went through one of the most difficult moments of his life.
And now, having recovered from his addictions, he hopes to resume his activity within the ring and for this, the promotional company Promociones del Pueblo is working to give him a date in August.
Cuadras, who made a stop at the Plaza de las Estrellas in Mexico City, told ESPN Deportes that he is about to travel to the Otomi Ceremonial Center to start camp and resume his lifestyle as an athlete, which includes his return to bantamweight, which was where his career began.
"I do not have the exact date nor the opponent, I only know that I am back in August, that they are looking for the location and opponent, and that [my return] will be at bantamweight. Besides that, I feel very anxious to return to the ring and show that I can once again become world champion," said Cuadras.
The 29-year-old fighter with a record of 36-3-1 and 27 knockouts, is coming back from being beaten by Puerto Rican contender McWilliams Arroyo - which took place on the undercard of SuperFly 2. For that contest, he was working with Abel Sánchez in his corner.
And after that he confessed that he had problems with addictions that led him to enter rehabilitation.
"I'm coming back with renewed energy, I want to go to the Otomí to train, I will be working with Alejandro Martínez as trainer and Miguel Mendoza as a physical trainer. I have worked with them before and I have done well, we will work hard, we have a lot to prove and now at bantamweight we will see how we feel, but we are already anxious to return in August," Cuadras said.
Promoter Osvaldo Küchle of Mexico is working out the details for the former champion's comeback, which is going to take place in Mexico.
