Former world champion Fernando “Kochulito” Montiel returns on Saturday at the Manuel Bernardo Gym in Chihuahua against Olimpian Arthur “El Rey” Santos and hopes to achieve a great victory leading to another world title. “I’m happy because I had an excellent preparation to fight. The training I did gives me incredible confidence that I’ll give a good show as always. I will not underestimate Santos. I had a very special preparation for this match, because I don’t want any surprises. I’ll demonstrate that I can still be world champion,” said Montiel.
