"I go into every fight with nothing to lose and everything
to gain. I don't care about the hype or the negativity. I am
just going in there to get the job don and I am having fun
"I took a break, stopped coming to the gym for 6 months, but
deep down inside I missed it. I spoke to my wife and I told
her 'I feel like I can still do it. I feel like the passion
is still there.'
"Obviously, I have the experience. I have been doing this
for such a long time. I am going to go out there, execute
it, and whatever people have to say, let them say it. It
doesn't affect me.
"I am in full 'camp life' mode. Alexis and I are working out
together, resting together, we are completely focused.
"You can't over think these fights anymore. A lot of people
don't know and fighters don't talk about what goes on behind
closed doors. The mental battles we face with doubt and
nerves, all that stuff can start to creep up. Now, for me,
it's whatever. I have nothing to loose, this next fight I
have everything to gain.
"The game plan is to win. That is all that matters."
Alexis “Lex” Rocha, Welterweight Contender
"I am happy to be back at the Honda Center, fighting in my
hometown. Last time I fought at the Honda Center, it took me
by surprise the fan base that came out to support me. It was
an electrifying night. I feel that this time around there
will be more fans so I am excited.
"I am in a good mental space. I believe in myself more and I
am not holding myself back. My confidence has skyrocketed
since my last fight. The fans will see that on November 13.
"You have to move on from fights. I take the good and the
bad and I move forward. That's really shaped me into the
fighter I am today."
Alejando Reyes, Lightweight Prospect
"I keep working in the gym and listen to my trainers. You
never stop learning. I have four fights under me and I still
have a lot room to improve and grow.
"It's a blessing to be at West Boxing Club, the gym is well
known and has been around for a long time. The gym backing
me, as well as my friends and family, pushes me to train
harder and put on a great show for everyone.
Jorge Chavez, Featherweight Prospect
"My pro-debut is a long time coming, I am very excited. I am
soon to be 'The Pride of San Diego.'
"I got go put in the work and proved that I deserve this
opportunity. I have been sparring with Ronny Rios and Alexis
Rocha and they have taught me a few things, some veteran
moves. It takes more than just conditioning to be up there
fighting a world champion.
