World Boxing Council Youth super featherweight Champion Eduardo "Rocky" Hernandez is determined to come of age this year and become the Absolute grown up Champion.

At a breakfast in the Geneve Hotel, in Mexico City, hungry fighter Rocky, who's still  a tender twenty years old, reflected but didn't bask in the glory of his rapid ascent.  Rocky (25-0-3, 21 KO's) tenderized four opponents last year. He KO'd three and TKO'd another. That earned him the WBC's Prospect of the Year Award, and he's now ranked three, marginally behind Mickey Roman and Francisco Vargas, but one place in front of Jhonny Gonzalez.

Rocky had expressed his desire to fight the veteran but wily Cristian Mijares (58-8-2, 26 KO'S),  but "El Diamante" who's ranked fifth, is a voluntary defence for Champion Miguel "Alacran" Berchelt,  on February 10th, at the Plaza de Toros, Cancun.

Undeterred Rocky has also called out Francisco "Bandido" Vargas.  While praising the youngster's spirit, skills and power,  former champion Bandido says he rather prefers a rematch with "Alacran" who inflicted a stinging defeat upon him, gashing him on both brows with lightning strikes, and seizing the crown.  That was Francisco's first ever loss.

Rocky who says he wants to fight against the BIG names grins that he can be patient, but at the self same time,  he's ready, motivated and prepared to fight for the title within this year.

Describing Miguel Berchelt, Rocky said: "Miguel is a very intelligent fighter, who's strong and has excellent judgement of distance.  He's a complicated boxer, but believe me, no rival is impossible!"
