Argentine contender Juan Carlos Reveco is getting ready in Osaka, where on December 31 he will look to recover the 112 pound world titl of the World Boxing Association that he lost to Kazuto Ioka last April.
Now they will battle for a second time on New Years Eve at the Edion Arena in Osaka, a city where Ioka (18-1, 10 KO) is the star fighter in what is going to be his second defense of the crown since capturing the belt from Reveco.
Reveco (36-2, 19 KO) confessed that his only goal is to "return home as world champion."
He also explained that he has confidence in hiss preparation.
Eeverything will be okay, because we've done an excellent preparation and I'm going to be wearing that belt."
The WBA ordered an immediate rematch after Reveco lost to Ioka. Since that moment, the Argentine fighter has reorganized himself.
"I had to start over. I didn't like how I fought against Ioka the previous time and now I'm going to fight in a much different manner to once again become world champion."
Months later, he admits that he made mistakes in this presentation, and this time he plans to make the proper adjustments against a boxer who is recognized as a good counter-puncher.
"I must not give him any openings. I'll have to move around the sides and out of focus. "
However, he does not think the fight will be easy, and promised his countrymen that he'll leave his "life in the ring" to reclaim the title.
