On his upcoming fight with Idalberto Umara:

“I know he is a fellow countryman from Cuba, so he is well trained from his youth, and he brings a lot of skill to the ring. I’m prepared to go the distance, but I will take him out if I get him hurt. I’m in the business of knockout out my opponents and this fight won’t be any different.”

“This will be my 4th fight scheduled for 10-rounds and I feel the time is now to make my mark in the super lightweight division. I’m ready to take on all contenders and hopefully I’ll be in position to fight for a world title in 2025. I’m hungry and I want to be a world champion, and capturing the WBA Continental title will help.”

On what a win will do for his career:

“Many doors will open with a victory against Umara. Winning these types of fights will help me climb up the rankings faster. I only want to fight the best possible opponents and this is a great opportunity to show the world what I’m made of.”
