A challenge will undoubtedly be present for the 24-year-old Campa, to face the experienced Quintero (29-7, 25 KOs), who has fought on the main stages of the United States with high caliber fighters and has already tried to win the IBF lightweight world title.

"We are aware of the challenge that Quintero represents, but that is what boxing is - going up levels, facing the best, and because of the styles that we have it will be a good fight and hopefully it will provide a great spectacle to the public," Campa said.

"I can not lose in front of my people. I will give everything as always in the ring. I am backed by the great preparation that we did since the beginning of December.
