Cesar Juarez is already training at full steam to get in great physical condition for his long-awaited WBO super bantamweight title shot. The belt is held by unbeaten Jessie Magdaleno.
The expectation to receive the official notification of the fight taking place on a date in September.
Juarez is the mandatory challenger under the World Boxing Organization (WBO). The puncher is eager to hand the first blemish to the undefeated record of Magdaleno (25-0-0, 18 KOs).
Juarez has been keeping in constant contact with his promoter and manager, Sean Gibbons and Luis Zapari.
"I am working with them. Gibbons works with Fernando Beltrán of Zanfer Promotions, who are negotiating the fight with Top Rank. Thanks to the support of my coach Manuel López, my family, my mom and dad - I'm happy to be able to fight for the world title and the championship will head back to Mexico," Juarez said.
"I'm waiting until they finalize the date. We know we're going to face a fairly complete fighter in Jessie Magdaleno, a well-known world champion in the United States, who is unbeaten. Because no one has beaten him, he is coming in with all the confidence that he will win me, but we're going to have a great fight And we're going to do the same thing to him that I did when I fought Albert Pagara (who Juarez knocked out)."
"With me he's going to have a difficult fight because I'm young and eager to be world champion. He's quite fast and he hits very hard.We have to take care of his speed and we are already working on handling that and his punch. But I trust in the work of my team, my dad. I've prepared physically. We are doing things right. We're going to start working with lefties and fast boxers."
