JOEL JULIO (25-0, 22 KOs)
“I train hard. I am ready for any opponent in any category. I know I will be champion at 147 pounds and I will be the champion for a long time. I can accommodate myself to any boxer and the knockouts just happen for me because I am very aggressive.”
ROBERT “THE DOCTOR” KAMYA (15-5, FIVE KOs)
“I am ready for whatever he has. He thinks he can knock out everyone, but he is not going to knock me out.”
RAUL “THE COBRA” MARTINEZ (12-0, NINE KOs)
“I was pushed to do better because my opponents were pretty good. I have been pushed to another level.
“I do not know too much about my opponent. I am going to go in there, do my job, do the fundamentals, try not to get hit, work the jab, and if I feel him wear down, I will work his body.”
ANDRES “ANDY BOY” LEDESMA (13-1-1, EIGHT KOs)
“I plan on doing my job like always. I have no say in how this fight will go. I will feel him out in the first round and I will do what it takes to beat him.
“I am always better prepared than my opponent. I have had better opportunities, better opponents. All boxers are the same to me. You have to respect them when you go in the ring and be prepared.”
