Linked by telephone with the WBC, number one contender for the super featherweight crown Mikey Roman, stressed that Father Time is his worst enemy, so come this coming Saturday night, there won`t be another minute to waste in his quest to prove that he`s the best pound for pound by beating Miguel Berchelt.
At almost thirty three years old in comparison to Alacran`s twenty six Mickey has waited a long time for this chance. It`s his third attempt at the title. He says he`s motivated and in excellent physical condition to work the champion round by round, preferably at short range. And although he`s definitely going for the knockout victory, he`s more than ready for the full twelve rounds.
“I have worked hard on my strategy, we studied Miguel and believe me I will bring him a box crammed with surprises, that he does not expect. This version of me plus my experience and my quality will give me the victory.
“Motivations I have many, but the most important is to give my people that title! I`m a fighter who likes to prove it up in the ring, but I can tell you this…I`m in my house and here I command “
