Here is what Juarez had to say from training camp:
On his recent training camp.
"Ever since the pandemic halted everything, I had to make
the best of my training regimen. I was able to stay in great
shape by doing a lot of road work and bag drills while
working with my dad Rudy Juarez at home. Once Texas opened,
I headed to San Antonio to work coach Rick Nunez. While I
was there, I was able to get great sparring. I’m in the best
shape of my life and fans can expect to see an explosive
performance from me.”
On his upcoming matchup with Willie Shaw.
"Willie Shaw is a technical fighter with a lot of skill.
Fortunately, I was able to get some good sparring with guys
that emulate his style. I know he’s sparred with some
top-level guys in the past and He has more experience in the
pros, so this is a big step up for me. I’m ready for the
challenge and Shaw will see some new wrinkles in my game
that no one has seen yet.”
On fighting on FOX National.
"When I got the call that I would be opening up the FOX
National show I was filled with excitement. FOX is the
premier channel for boxing and everyone back home in
Brownsville will get to see me fight. It’s a dream come true
to be fighting on such a big platform and I want to thank
everyone on my team for all their hard work. FOX is the best
and I’m ready to shine.”
