Ioka: When I Watched Superfly 2, I Knew I Could Beat Them

SUPERFLY 3 rivals three-time world champion Kazuto Ioka, (22-1-0, 13 KO’s), of Osaka, Japan and WBC Super Flyweight Silver Champion McWilliams Arroyo, (17-3-0, 14 KO’s), of Fajardo, Puerto Rico, worked out for the Southern California media on Wednesday in anticipation of their highly anticipated showdown this Saturday, September 8 at the ‘Fabulous Forum’ and televised on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 9:45 p.m. ET/PT. Fighting in a scheduled 10-round title bout, their clash will open the televised triple-header.

Also training in front of the media were female fighters ‘Bang Bang Lulu’ Louisa Hawton, (8-1-0, 4 KO’s) of Perth, Australia and Brenda Flores, (12-4-1, 2 KO’s), of Tijuana, Mexico who will clash in a ten-round bout for the Interim World Boxing Council Atomweight World Title which will be featured on the undercard international live stream.

Kazuto Ioka

“I attended Superfly 2 while I was on vacation after I retired. While watching each of the three top fights, I know I could compete and be victorious against any of the fighters in the series that night. I loved the atmosphere at the Forum and wanted very much to fight on Superfly 3. I wanted another challenge like this.”

“I have a lot of respect for Arroyo but I have prepared very well in Las Vegas with Ismael Salas to be victorious.”

“It would mean a great deal to me if I can become the first four-time world champion from Japan but first I have to conquer Arroyo.”

McWilliams Arroyo

“There’s a lot of hype around Ioka but I’m the best fighter he’s faced. I had a great win against Carlos Cuadras, I was overlooked then and feel that I’m being overlooking now. None of that will matter on Saturday night when I’ll be victorious and ready to move on to bigger fights.”

Louisa Hawton

“This is my chance at redemption and at the same venue, the Forum. I loved fighting there in February and can’t wait to put on a show on Saturday night and win the title in front of the great fans.”

Brenda Flores

“I need to dictate the pace and use my strategy to be victorious. I’ve known Louisa for a long time and I know how to beat her. We work so hard to get in the ring and this is a serious business but most importantly I need to win.”
