On his upcoming matchup with Ruben Villa:
“I think Villa struggles with my style of fighting, and they picked the wrong guy to face in his return. Villa is a good boxer, but I am not sure we can say he is an elite pro or even an elite fighter. He has skills, but he’s going to be in a dog fight, and I question his heart.”
On his recent training camp:
“Things have been great, I was given tons of time to prepare for this fight, and I am ready to be in Villa's face for every minute of every round. He better have trained hard for this fight because I am coming.”
On fighting on Thompson Boxing cards:
"I am excited to be fighting on another Thompson Boxing card as this will be back-to-back outings for me on their platform. I like that Thompson Boxing offers streaming of the fight worldwide. Thompson always provides a great professional environment, and I am excited to show my skills on their card."
On what a win will do for his career:
"Simply put I will take Ruben's spot in the sport. I want to take everything he worked for and make it my own. This is a big opportunity for me and a win will lead to bigger fights against some big names.”
