Here is what Blair Cobbs, who is managed by Greg Hannley of Prince Ranch Boxing had to say about his upcoming fight with Villalobos, training camp and more.
On his matchup against Steven Villalobos:
“I’m expecting a tough fight from Villalobos, who bring his own undefeated record to the ring. Whenever you have two undefeated prospects looking to stay undefeated, you know its going to be a fan friendly fight. He has a lot of power, but so do I, so its going to come down to who wants it more. I’ll be letting my hands go with bad intentions and If I get him hurt, I’m taking him out.”
On his recent training camp:
“My trainers Bones Adams and Brandon Woods have put together a great strategy for this fight. We’ve been working on several things in camp and it will all be on display for the world to see when I step into the ring on August 22nd. It’s been a hard training camp, but very productive.”
On defending his Jr. NABF Welterweight title:
“I’m looking to defend this title with everything I got, because I know that a victory will put me in a better position to fight for a world title. Defending this belt will be the first of many that will be acquired down the line as I march up the welterweight rankings.
On fighting at the Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino:
“I love fighting in the desert. The fans that come out and support boxing at the Fantasy Springs Casino are very energetic and I can definitely feel the love with I fight there. It’s all about entertaining the fans and that’s exactly what I’m going to do. It’s the Blair “The Flair” show, and I won’t be denied….WHOOOO!
