Vargas and Manzanilla…downbeat and upbeat face to face
Undefeated world champion Rey Vargas and opponent Venezuelan Franklin Manzanilla briefly met during the press conference prior to their clash at Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.
The world champion, trained by the legendary Don Nacho Beristain, said: “I am very happy to return to the ring, I I hope he is prepared. I’m calm because I have worked hard.
“Everything is going as it was thought. I know he’s a strong fighter, but I am the champion and we are ready for a war.”
Knockout artist Manzanilla who holds the Silver WBC title, said: “Thanks to the promoters for this opportunity, I’m just waiting for February 9 to give my very best. I know this fight is going to be a war.
“I have heard that he says I should have to prepare myself psychologically to be defeated, I just tell him he should not be that over confident as he will get surprised!”
