"We are feeding ourselves well, doing things correctly, and every day feeling in better condition," Velez said. "I'm ready to do my job on September 22 before my Juncos people. Before I thought that Cruz would take me the distance, but the way I feel, this fight will not reach the limit. It's the 'Age of Wonder' and we're ready for the night of hunting. "

Meanwhile, Cruz mentioned that "I'm getting comfortable with the weight and I'm eating well. It is an excellent training camp, one of the best in my career. This will be a great fight. I'll be back and I'll return with a victory.
