“It’s an honor to be in Mexico City for this press conference. I’ve started training in Managua and camp is going very well.”

“I’m very proud to be fighting at such a legendary venue as the Forum on the same
show as one of my favorite fighters’, Gennady Golovkin. 

“The Forum is special to me as my idol Alexis Arguello fought there and defended his world title.”

“I know Edgar very well, he’s a gentleman and a true warrior, and on May 16th we plan on stealing the show.”

“I’ve been a world champion before and I’m ready to win the title again on May 16th
against Roman.”

“This fight will be a war and the fans will be the real winners.”

“Many Mexican fighters have won world titles at The Forum and I plan on being the next.”
