Luis Nery Aims To Unify Division, Ranks The Top Fighters at 118

Tijuana's Luis "Pantera" Nery is a boxer who is very clear about his short-term and long-term objectives.

“I see myself with the four titles at bantamweight (WBC, WBO, WBA and IBF) and at super bantamweight. That is my long-term goal. There is talent and there is enough time to achieve it," said Nery in an interview with Ernesto Amador.

Nery (30-0, 24 KO’s), former world champion at bantamweight, accepts his mistakes mostly because he failed to make weight for more than one contest.

“I realized my mistakes. I have enough time in my career to demonstrate what I can do and we are going to get ahead. I'm dying to be up in the ring, make the weight, make a spectacular fight, and then another big fight, to remove that image of myself. I'm already impatient to fight," said the 25-year-old Nery.

Nery confirmed that he will fight Aaron Alameda at 122 pounds on August 29 in the United States, in a fight slated to be televised by Showtime.

“I have a month and three weeks of training in Guadalajara, and what is missing is seven more weeks working with Eddy Reynoso, improving my defense, more accurate shots, the stronger ones, planting my feet well. We are working very hard, we fit perfectly well. He has a lot of experience with Saúl (Alvarez), you can see in his fights how he has been improving. I realize that in sparring training I have improved a lot, Eddy puts a lot of discipline in you, puts a lot of pressure in the gym, he is very serious in training," said Nery.

“118 pounds is a very difficult division, very attractive, that's why they tell me to clean it up first. If I had to rank the bantamweight division, for me I would put Rigondeaux first, then Nonito Donaire, then Naoya Inoue, then Jason Moloney, John Riel Casimero and in the end I would put Nordine Oubaali.

“We are going to talk to the promoter, who are the ones who are going to decide. I am to go against the best. They want me to first sweep 118 and then go up to 122. My goal has always been to get all four titles in each division."

I guarantee he will never attempt to go back to 118 again. He will feel great in his upcoming 122 fight and won't bother sacrificing down lower than that in the future.
