On his recent training camp:
“I feel each camp is producing tremendous results. I am an
old-school fighter with an old-school mentality. I’ve given
a lot to this sport, but I learned when I lost to Saul
Bustos, that just working hard isn’t enough. Now, I’m
obsessed with winning, and improving day by day. I never
missed a day in the gym or cut any corners in this camp.
This training camp has set the tone for the rest of my life,
as I see it as a down payment on my dream moving forward,
and that’s to become a world champion."
On his matchup with Adrian Gutierrez:

it was very taxing mentally, physically, and emotionally. A
win here continues my march toward the top of the division
as I know who I am, but I must demonstrate it to the world.
This Friday, I am ready to set into 2023 with a massive
On fighting in the main event near his hometown of Corona,
“It is no secret that I fight for my fans. I get a lot of
local support and from everyone in the Inland Empire. At
times it can cost me, but I don’t care. I love each and
every one of my supporters and will not apologize for that.
Thompson Boxing has given me the platform to perform and
fight in front of all my people who enjoy watching me fight.
When I am fighting in the main event of a fight card it is a
great honor, and I take the responsibility to heart. My
performance is what a lot of people are staying to see, and
I am going to make sure it is a good one."
