“I think it’s going to be a very tough fight, we’re fighting a former world champion and someone who has a lot of experience, who hits really hard and a fighter who has nothing to lose. Castillo is going to come out with all guns blazing and that makes it a tough fight and that’s why I’ve prepared very hard for it,” said Gomez.

“This has been one of the hardest training camps I’ve done. I’ve been training for over two and a half months with Robert Garcia’s team at the Oxnard Boxing Academy. I always put on an exciting fight and this is going to be one of those fights that you just can’t miss.”
