Michael Dutchover Camp Notes
Thompson Boxing Promotions’ super lightweight prospect, Michael “The West Texas Warrior” Dutchover (14-1, 10 KOs), who is co-promoted with Banner Promotions, is scheduled to face Ivan Leon Benitez (14-4-1, 6 KOs) in an 8-round main event showdown this Sunday June, 6th, 2021, on the next edition of 3.2.1. Boxing.
On his recent training camp:
"I’ve been working hard with my coach, Danny Zamora, and we had a great training camp. I am just really focused on getting to the next level, and it all starts with good training in the gym. It’s been almost a year since I last fought so I’m ready to unleash all the stuff I’ve been working on during this long layoff."
On his matchup with Ivan Leon Benitez:
"He is a good fighter, who just had a draw against a guy who was undefeated. I’m sure he got better during the pandemic as a lot of fighters were training hard during their time off. I have to come in well-prepared and at the best of my abilities, as he has shown he can beat anyone on any given night. This is a great test for me and I’m confident I’ll be able to win this fight."
On making his 2021 debut:
"I am really excited to get back in the ring, this past year has been hard on everyone, and I have had to battle back from a few things myself. When boxing is in my life everything else falls into place, and I am so happy to be back in the ring in this Sunday."
On fighting on 3.2.1 Boxing:
"I love what Thompson Boxing and Banner Promotions has done for me. Even though there won’t be any fans in attendance, I love the atmosphere of the 3.2.1. Boxing shows. I’m grateful just to be fighting and thankful that all my friends and family back home will be able to watch live on the internet.”
