  Q & A With Daniel "Twitch" Franco

By William Trillo


This Saturday night at The Westin Bonaventure Hotel in Los Angeles undefeated Super Featherweight Daniel Franco will be featured on a great year ending card promoted by Ed Homes’ All Star Boxing. Franco is one of the young fighters in Southern California who shows huge upside and with his fan friendly style he could become a must see fighter in 2014. We spoke with Franco this week and got his thoughts his career and his plans for the future.

Pound4Pound: On Saturday Night you are going to close out the year on a boxing show in Los Angeles. Are you ready to give your fans and early Christmas gift?

Daniel Franco: Of course I am ready! The fight fans to attend are in for spectacular fight.

P4P: In October you won in pretty spectacular fashion with a 4th round KO. Can you tell us about that performance?

DF: We took that fight on a four day notice. I was limited to one day of sparring to prepare for a southpaw, but i had been staying busy in the gym so being in-shape was not a problem at all. The first three rounds of the fight i was out-boxing my opponent...going into the fourth round my corner told me that i needed to knock him out and not leave it up to the judges. (My previous fight scored a majority draw). I knew what my corner wanted me to do, so i executed.

P4P: Are you looking to close the year in similar fashion, with a KO?

DF: If I win this fight by KO i will be very happy. But, I’m not going to be looking for the KO. I am sticking with the game plan and then we will see if he goes out.

P4P: 2014 is right around the corner, have you made any resolutions for your career for the coming year? What should we expect to see from you next year?

DF: Yes! I want to be busier than I have ever been this coming year. In the past my fights have been spread apart because of school, I am majoring in Nero sociology, but now i am completely focused on my career as a professional fighter. Expect to see me more frequently and nothing but spectacular performances.

P4P: Thanks for your time and good luck to you, and a Merry Christmas to you and your family. Do you have anything to say in closing to your fans?

DF: Thank you very much! Happy holidays to you and your family. I want to thank everyone who believes in me and knows that one day i will be at the top. It really is amazing and an honor to be surrounded by people that have such great faith in my ability. I would like to thank my manager Ray Chaparro who is doing an amazing job along with Mario Aguiniga and my coaches and the entire DTF Squad (Daniel “Twitch” Franco.

Thank you so much for your time!
