Sanchez gives his thoughts on his recent training camp, his upcoming bout with Correa, fighting in Southern California, and more.
On his recent training camp with coach Manny Robles:
“I’m having a great training camp, my body is healthy, and I’ve improved in all facets of my game. My coach Manny Robles is one of the top trainers in boxing and we keep getting better together. We have a nice understanding with each other on what needs to be done in this fight. We have all the sparring needed to get ready for this fight. I’m in tremendous shape and I’ll be ready to go.”
On his matchup with Eros Correa:
“I’ve seen Correa fight a few times and he’s a good fighter, but I’ve been in the ring with much better competition, and I see myself dominating this fight. He was one of the top amateurs, but in the pros, he’s just average. I know he’s coming to fight, so I’ll be fully ready to counter anything he brings to the ring. I just believe I’m better than him in all areas, especially my power. I don’t think this fight goes the distance.”
On fighting in Southern California:
“Anytime I fight in Southern California it’s a great feeling because I know I’ll have a lot of support from family and friends. I thrive when I know my people will be there watching. I’m looking forward to putting on a great show for all those watching live.”
On headlining Thompson Boxing’s “Path To Glory” event:
“Headlining Thompson Boxing events are incredible, especially at the Doubletree Hotel where the fans are loud and rowdy. I’ve worked my way to this position and I’m very grateful to my Thompson Boxing family for always believing in me and giving me opportunities to further my career. To be headlining this event is a true blessing.”
