“I feel great my last fight was in December. My body needed a rest. I had a good camp now it’s time to perform,”

“Ryan is a good fighter. A solid 19 year old but he’s nothing special. He’s special on Instagram,”

“I plan on giving a great fight. I’m always there to fight,”

Super welterweight prospect Marvin Cabrera (8-0, 6 KOs) of Mexico was on hand as he will take on Neeco Macias (16-0, 9 KOs) of Palmdale, California in the Facebook co-feature.

“This will be a hell of a fight. I’m fighting a solid opponent in Neeco Macias,”

“I’ve seen him fight before all of his stoppages are usually because the referee steps in and stops the flurries. He misses most of his punches. Not that he has pop,”

“I had a good preparation that began in Mexico. We had good sparring now were here wrapping it up,”

“Expect a clash and me to come out victorious,”

Also participating in the workouts was rising welterweight prospect Alexis “Lex” Rocha (11-0, 8 KOs) of Santa Ana, California as he will be in action on the Canelo Golovkin 2 undercard at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Alexis Rocha:

“It’s a big opportunity for me on a big card to showcase my skills. I have trained really hard,”

“I’ve heard my opponent is a very rugged tough guy and he comes forward,”

“It will be a hell of a show. I’m looking to put on a great show,”
