Angel "Tito" Acosta Media Workout
WBO Light Flyweight World Champion Angel "Tito" Acosta (19-1, 19 KOs) of San Juan, Puerto Rico held a media workout as he gets prepared for his fight against Ganigan Lopez (35-8, 19 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico. Also present were super lightweight Herbert Acevedo (15-2, 6 KOs) and welterweight prospect Aaron McKenna (6-0, 4 KOs) as they all worked out Tuesday at Legendz Boxing in Norwalk, California as they will be featured in separate bouts on Saturday, March 30, 2019 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, California streamed live on DAZN.
"I feel very happy because of the support from Golden Boy Promotions and Miguel Cotto Promotions. I'm delighted for the opportunity to fight on DAZN. I've been working hard for this fight. I've been in camp since January 27 because I thought I was going to fight on March 16. But then I got the call to fight on March 30. Either way, I'm excited to defend my title for a third time."
"Training with Freddie Roach has been something else. We've had two fights with him, and it's been really great. My goal right now is to keep defending my title, but if the opportunity to unify presents itself, we will take it. But right now, I'm not thinking about any other opponent. I'm focused on Ganigan Lopez. After that, we can talk about other opponents."
“This preparation has been going well leading to this fight, I’m really looking forward to this fight,”
“So far I’ve learned a lot since my first fight. I want to keep improving,”
“My upcoming fight vs Alfonso Olvera I’m looking forward to it. I’m not looking past this guy. I know he’s coming to give me a fight. I study my opponents well. He’s tall lenghty and throws the jab,”
“Camps been going well. I feel great and I’m ready to showcase my hard work,”
“I want to put my name out there,”
