Pedraza-Klimov: CompuBox Historical Review

Undefeated Puerto Rican contender Jose Pedraza throws at the weight class average (57 per round), but more importantly lands well above, 27 total punches per round & 21 power shots per round (52%). Opponents (Martinez, Farmer, Garcia, Page) landed just 22% of their power punches.

Andrey Klimov, who has faced the much tougher opposition, is busier, throwing 68 per round, but landing just 27% overall and 35% of his power punches. Opponents (Cota, Avila, Terence Crawford, John Molina, Gomez) landed 30% of their power shots vs. Klimov

Jose "The Sniper" Pedraza

"This was a long, hard training camp. We began training for this shot in December. We have worked extremely hard and are ready to show the world on Saturday night.

"We have seen video of Klimov and know what to expect on Saturday night. We will take it round by round and break him down.

"We can box, or we can bang. Whatever Klimov brings to the table we will be ready for. I plan on using my boxing technique to control the pace, but if he wants to stand there toe-to-toe, we are fine with that as well.

"It is important for me to look better than Crawford did in his victory over Klimov. I want to show the world that I am one of the best fighters in the entire sport."

Regarding the comparisons to fellow Puerto Rican Star Felix Verdejo - "Verdejo is a good fighter and a good guy, but Jose Pedraza will be the next world champion to represent the great country of Puerto Rico."

Andrey Klimov

"This was a great camp. We worked very hard, and trained with a lot of different champions. I came out 100 percent mentally and physically ready to go.

"I feel that the fight with Crawford actually worked to my advantage more than my disadvantage. I learned a lot in that fight and I will use that on Saturday night against Pedraza. What Pedraza brings to the table on Saturday night I will be ready for it. There will be no surprises on Saturday night, I am ready.

"I am very confident going into this fight. Pedraza is a tough opponent but I don't think he is ready for what I am going to bring.

"It is an honor to be here and fighting at this level. On Saturday night you will see a spectacular performance."
