Below is what the fighters had to say at today’s media work out:
MANUEL AVILA, Featherweight Contender:
“I’m excited to be the main event, and glad to be back in Los Angeles,” said featherweight contender Manuel Avila. “My opponent is strong, and likes to come forward in the ring. I’ve fought similar fighters in my career, and I’m not scared to face off against him. On paper, it looks like I’m up for a challenge, but I know what I am capable of.”
“This fight will be a step in the right direction. I see myself taking a shot at a title within the next couple of fights. I’ve been getting stronger with every bout, and I know that I’ll be ready for it when the time comes.”
EMILIO SANCHEZ, Super Bantamweight Prospect:
“Every fight is a step up from the last. Golden Boy has been a huge part of that, and being able to be here as a co-main event is wild,” said super bantamweight prospect Emilio Sanchez. “I may not know much on my opponent, but that doesn’t matter. We train hard to endure, to be resilient, and to be able to make it to the next step in the ladder. I’m focused and ready to put on a show for everyone.”
PABLO RUBIO, JR., Super Bantamweight Prospect:
“I’m excited to be a part of the Estrella telecast for the first time,” said super bantamweight prospect Pablo Rubio Jr. “The Belasco Theater is home for me — all of my professional fights in my career have all been here. Golden Boy has been good to me, and they have contributed to the major success I have had as a fighter who is beginning his career. I can’t wait to demonstrate to those watching live on TV and those at the theater what I’m capable of in the ring.”
TENOCHTITLAN NAVA, Super Featherweight Prospect:
“This is the fourth fight in my career. I remember when I first stepped into the ring professionally, and I thought ‘wow is this even real?!'” Said up- and- coming super featherweight warrior Tenochtitlán “T-Dog” Nava. “I get to wake up every morning and do what I love, and that’s a blessing. That translates into the hard work we see in the ring– something the fans will get to see this Friday.”
