Championship boxing will be back this Saturday at the Lakefront Arena,  New Orleans   When Regis "Rougarou" Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) will  defend the WBC super lightweight Interim belt against undefeated Juan Jose Velasco (20-0, 12 KOs).

And sensational lightweight prospect Teofimo López (9-0, 7 KOs) will seek to continue with his amazing path when he fights  Brazilian William Silva (25-1, 14 KOs) for the Continental title of the Americas of the WBC.
 
Prograis vs. Velasco and Lopez vs. Silva will be televised live on ESPN and ESPN Deportes at 7 p.m. ET. The entire card will be broadcast on ESPN + starting at 4:30 p.m. ET.
 
This is what the fighters had to say during an open media training.
 
REGIS PROGRAIS
 
"I'm not going to say I'm going for the knockout, but I'm going to try to hurt my opponent, boxing is a brutal sport, and that's how it's supposed to be, I feel like I'm a killer, of course, I'm kind of it. I can smile with you, but when I get to the ring....
 
"When I started in boxing, I was a natural street fighter most of the time, it was a great influence because it encouraged me and made me hungry. I wanted to be excellent and I knew I wanted to be a professional boxer when I was 14 or 15 years old."
 
"There are a lot more distractions fighting at home, but it's part of the game, you have to do it, it's part of my job."
 
JUAN JOSÉ VELASCO
 
"Pressure is not a problem for me, Regis has the pressure, I'm not expected to do much, which is fine for me. I'll show that the experts are wrong, I feel that everyone is supporting him, but this is a risky fight for Regis. Everyone  can talk, but on Saturday he will have to fight. "
