Segura who has been trained by Javier Capetillo for this fight, figures the fight will come down to who lands his shots first and has better condition.

“I know that the key is going to be the conditioning, we both know each other very well and I know he can punch and I know I can punch, so is important to land early and keep working all night long. It should be a great battle as long as it last”, said Segura,
