Here is what Gutierrez had to say about this recent training camp, his matchup with Louie Lopez, and more.
On his recent training camp:
“Lopez is in a lot of trouble. I can’t express how wrong I am stylistically for him. Everything he has trouble with, I’m going to go hard at, and that is why I spent this whole camp perfecting and crafting the best game plan to take him out. This might be one of the last fights of his career with the way I am going to pressure him all night long on fight night.”
On his matchup with Louie Lopez:
“I give Lopez a lot of credit for being a tough fighter, and a true warrior in the ring, but I don’t see anything special in him, and beyond that don’t call this an upset when I win. I’m undefeated and should be the favorite. I have never lost. Louie Lopez is the challenger, and I am the fighter who is coming in here putting my perfect record on the line. I think it will be an exciting fight for however long it lasts, and I see myself as the victor.”
On what a win will do for his career:
“It is simple, I am coming to take Louie Lopez’s spot. I am the next guy up. I will beat him on Friday, and then move forward with my career, and would be glad to do it on Thompson Boxing shows as well. People see him as a prospect, I simply see him as an opponent. What this will do is simple – it will validate my career as a top prospect.”
On fighting in the main event on Thompson Card:
“This will be my first time fighting in the main event of a Thompson Boxing card, and I can’t wait. I am ready to steal the show and have those watching see a new star in the welterweight division. This is my time to win over the fans.”
Rich Marotta will operate as the blow-by-blow commentator with expert commentary by Doug Fischer. Jessica Rosales will serve as the onsite ringside reporter.
