IBF mini-flyweight champion Katsunari Takayama (27-6, 10 KOs) and WBO champion Francisco Rodriguez Jr. (14-2, 10 KOs) met with the media Thursday for the final press conference in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. Takayama will be fighting this Saturday in a 105lb unification clash against Rodriguez.

Takayama said “I’ve come to Monterrey willing to fight a war, to give everything in the ring. Rodriguez is a talented fighter, but as everyone has seen I am also talented.”

Rodriguez stated, “There is no human power that can remove me from victory before my people in the Arena Monterrey.”
