Roberto Garcia Confident of Defeating Antwone Smith

By Reynaldo Sanchez

On Friday at the Convention Center in Pharr, Texas - super welterweight contender Antwone Smith 21-3-1 (12 KO's) and the Mexican Roberto García 30-3-0 (21 KO's) will clash in a ten round bout. The event will be transmitted by ESPN, as part their Friday Night Fights series. The fight will be presented as the co-main event to Tyrone Brunson vs. James De La Rosa.

Roberto Garcia spoke with us and said - "this fight is important for both of us, because the winner will be in a better position in the rankings and we are focused to get the victory. Smith is strong and our target is to be in the best physical condition for this fight and to offer the best of myself to get the victory ”

He also added - “I am doing very well and haven’t had any problems with the weight. We are only one pound over the weight limit and we have the rest of the week to reduce the excess. Our training camp has been very good. The sparring sessions have given us the power and stámina to arrive in excellent condition.”

“It will be a tough fight; we are ready to rise to the occassion. We believe the fans are going to win, because Antwone is a worthy opponent and surely he will also attempt to secure the victory at all times."

Antwone Smith has been training hard in the Jorge Rubio GYM in Hialeah, Floirda and reports indicate Smith is beaming with confidence. Last November in Miami, Smith defeated Yoryi Estrella with an eight round unanimous decision and he's ready to reclaim at top position in the world ratings.
