“I feel strong, I feel focused, I’m ready to do all the hard work it takes to become a World Champion. March 5th, you will all see how hard I have been working these last few weeks.”
“Like I said before, as a fighter, there is always room for improvement. With Jose Benavidez Sr., I have learned so much in so little time. He pushes us beyond our limits.”
“Here at the Fightstars TV camp house, there are no distractions. It’s just us, our team, my stablemates, pushing each other hard and having fun doing what we love to do.”
JOSE “RAYO” VALENZUELA
“Right now it’s looking like I might be on the Spence vs. Ugas card but I don’t have a definite date, regardless, I’m training hard to be always ready. I’m on a mission, I’m hungry, the ring is my playground. I can’t wait to get in there and have some fun!”
“Bring on any opponent, I’m ready to go from a prospect to a contender!”
DAVID “EL BANDERA ROJA” BENAVIDEZ
“I don’t have a definite fight day, but I’m here training hard with my team to be ready to face David Lemiuex and become a 3x World Champion.”
“Of course I want to fight Canelo, Plant, Charlo any of those guys, but they don’t want to fight me, so I’ll fight who I have to fight, become a World Champion until they have no choice but to face me.”
“I’ve seen a lot of progress in Diego Pacheco training with us, he does everything he’s got to do, no excuses. He shows the discipline in camp, March 5th we will see it in the ring.”
