Orozco Plans For Fireworks With Humberto Soto

By Hesiquio Balderas

Antonio Orozco is headed into his toughest fight on October 3rd at the StubHub Center in an HBO televised fight.  He knows Humberto "Zorrita" Soto is an experienced and outstanding fighter and if he beats Soto, the future looks bright for the "Relentless" one as he looks to make his name in the 140 pound division.

"I was born in L.A. and started boxing at a young age. My dad has supported me since then and he taught me to be a hard worker and what my father taught me the most was loyalty. That's what I'm all about - that's why I keep my family close and all of them play a major role in my life. From my wife to my children, to my father to everyone who has always supported me. I also include my manager Frank Espinoza who has always been there for me and I'm loyal.

"That's my motto. I don't follow the trend of going with the manager of the moment. I take my career very seriously and I am confident that Frank and my promotional company will take me to the world championship and we will make history," said Orozco

Antonio is looking for a world championship in the near future but said that he first must take care of business and is not looking past "Zorrita".

"Humberto Soto is a great fighter. He has won titles in 3 weight classes and whatever I bring to the ring will not surprise him. He has been in the ring with great champions but I trust my youth, my technique, my will to win and I am hungry to become a world champion soon. 

"What excites me is that Golden Boy is making this tough matchup and that's what I want. I want to face the best and make the fans happy. My fight against Humberto is the type of fights that the fans want" concluded Orozco.

If Orozco beats Soto, he could be in line for the winner of the main event fight of the evening between Lucas Matthysse and Viktor Postol. Other potential opponents are Ruslan Provodnikov or Orozco's former amateur victim Jessie Vargas.

Whoever the opponent is, the future looks bright and Orozco is looking to expand his record of 22-0 (15 KOS) and is looking forward to being king of the 140 pound weight class just like Julio Cesar Chavez did in the 90s.
