upcoming matchup and more:
On his recent training in Las Vegas, with his father and
trainer Richard Barrientes:
ďThere is no place like Las Vegas when it comes to training.
Iím constantly sparring top level fighters, because all the
best talent in the sport comes to Vegas to train. My dad
puts me in with a lot of good world class guys. All my
sparring is with some of the best fighters in boxing.
Training camp has been fantastic to say the least.Ē
On his matchup with Paul Carroll:
ďWe didnít have much time to do research on Carroll because
he was a last minute opponent. After looking at his record
it shows that he has a lot of power because heís knocked out
everyone heís beaten. Iím sure heís going to want to slug it
out so Iím preparing to go to war. Iíll be ready to fire
back and counter anything he brings into this fight.Ē
On making his second televised appearance on FS1:
ďBecause Iím only 18-years old, I feel like Iím in the best
possible position as opposed to other fighters my age. Iím
with the best boxing organization, PBC, and fighting on the
great FOX Sports networks. Iím going to take more risks in
this fight and show the world why I deserve to be fighting
on national television. Iím going to be more aggressive in
this fight and give the fans something to talk about.Ē
