Ugas Vs Barrios whiff of arms …The atmos is building!
Former world champions Yordenis Ugas and Mario “Azteca” Barrios offered an open training session to the media at the DLX Boxing in Las Vegas, where they showed they are in tip top shape.
It`s for the interim World Boxing Council welterweight title on Saturday, September 30 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, on the card headlined by the Canelo vs. Charlo fight.
Ugas is trained by Ismael Salas, while Barrios trains with Bob Santos. So, they were ready to shoot the breeze.
“In the end, it’s about taking each round as seriously as the last. I don’t take anything for granted. The goal is for each and every round to go in the direction I want.
“I’m not in the prediction business, but what I do is fight elite fighters, give my best every round and let the chips fall where they may.
“I’m used to these big fight environments, but it’s very exciting to be on the card with a star as big as Canelo. He is a great source of pride and I plan to do my best for all the fans watching.”
“It’s beautiful to fight here in Las Vegas again. I’m 5-0 in Las Vegas and this is my third time fighting at the T-Mobile Arena. “I feel at home and I love fighting here in Las Vegas.”
“I’m going to bring the same intensity that I bring in every fight. Now I feel much more comfortable and adapted to the weight.
“I am preparing the best I can. We have a very good combat plan that we are preparing for Ugas. It’s a really tough fight, but that’s the kind of fights I like to take on. “I want to continue testing myself and my ability and skill in the ring.
“Everything has been really good. I’ve been here in Las Vegas for a few months to be prepared. My mind and body are in good shape right now. It is exciting.
I think moving here to Las Vegas was necessary. I feel more alert than ever and more focused. I do tremendous training here. “It has been very beneficial.
“A win in this fight means everything to me and my career right now. It puts me at the top of the division with the best welterweights out there and gets me closer to the biggest fights.”
The event is promoted by Canelo Promotions and TGB Promotions and will be broadcast on Showtime.
