“There were no festivities for me. I sacrificed myself training during the Christmas season and I know that the results will be seen this Saturday in the ring,” assured Felix Jr. “We made some changes in my physical preparation for this fight. I did less chest work and we focused more on strengthening the legs. What we are seeking with this changes is more speed and to be able to throw longer combinations of punches,” revealed the young Aztec fighter.
