Just a few hours before he has to risk his crown for the second time, the WBC flyweight world champion, Adrian El “Confesor” Hernandez (22-1-1, 14 KOs), is quiet and motivated to meet his Thai rival Kompayak Porpramook (43-3-0. 29 KOs) in a bout that is scheduled at 4 pm (Bangkok time) on Friday 23 in the 11th Infantry Regiment of Bangkok.
Adrian who is ready to fight for the first time in that distant country, but not in Asia where he already fought in Japan in 2007 earning two victories, one by knockout and one by decision said:
“I am calm and waiting for the day of the battle, I came down here (Thailand) to expose my championship, and I will take it back to Mexico, because I’m sure I will win. I know, I will face a very experienced opponent, who also is at his hometown with the support of his people, but in the ring we will be along, and there you will see who is the best.”
