Alexis Rocha Media Workout
Orange County’s rising star, Alexis “Lex” Rocha (18-1, 12
KOs) hosted a media workout today ahead of his fight against
Philadelphia’s Blair “The Flair” Cobbs (15-0-1, 10 KOs) on
March 19. The 10-round welterweight fight will be featured
as the co-main event to Vergil Ortiz, Jr. vs. Michael
McKinson at the University of Southern California’s Galen
Center in Downtown Los Angeles and will be streamed live,
worldwide, on DAZN. Alexis took us on tour of Downtown Santa
Ana and then travelled to his gym TKO Boxing Club for a
workout where he was joined by his team, his brother world
title contender Ronny Rios, and the mayor of the City of
Santa Ana, Vicente Sarmiento.
Below is what the fighter had to say about his upcoming
“I am excited for the challenge to face Blair Cobbs. He is
an undefeated fighter, I take nothing away from him because
he shows a lot of heart in the ring. I have seen him hit the
deck, get back up, and win his fight. He’s a good fighter,
but I am very motivated to go out there and shine.
“I am not intimated by undefeated record. I put no pressure
on myself about that, because last time I put pressure on
myself I lost. Since that loss, that 0 went away, and I feel
like the pressure got off of me. You put so much pressure on
yourself to stay undefeated and really all that pressure can
be defeating, mentally.
“He has a unique style; he likes to mix it up. But I feel
like I know his weaknesses and his strengths and come fight
night, I am ready for whatever.
“I give every training camp 110%. My confidence is through
the roof, my training has been incredible, my worth ethic is
incredible, the commitment from my team is incredible. And
the mind set I carry is one where I know what I want, and I
know how to get it. I have dreams, I have desires that I
want to go get and I am very motivated.
