Former WBO minimumweight champion Moisés “Moi” Fuentes (16-1-1, 8 KOs) and Gerardo ¨Diablito¨ Verde (18-5-1, 14 KOs) faced off in advance of their twn round jr flyweight clash on Saturday at the Foro Tecate installed in the parking lot of Casino Caliente, in Tijuana
Moises Fuentes: I feel great, I’ve done a lot of preparation and I’ve come to show that I want that second world championship. Verde is a great fighter, very strong and very brace but we will defeat him. I’m going to dedicate this win to the fans in Tijuana.
Gerardo Verde: I respect Fuentes, he’s a young fighter who has had a great career but we have the boxing skills and experience to beat him. It’s a great opportunity in my career and I don’t want to waste it.
