World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior lightweight champion, Roman “Rocky” Martinez ended today his training camp in Puerto Rico weighing 132 3/4 pounds one week before his third title defense against the former WBO featherweight champion Miguel Angel “Mikey” Garcia on November 9 at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, in a Top Rank presentation to be broadcasted on HBO.

Martinez (27-1-2, 16 KOs), who is going to defend his 130 pounds title for the third time against Garcia (32-0, 27 KOs), worked today for the Puerto Rican media at the Dorado Municipal Gym in Dorado with his trainers Raul “Papo” Torres and Freddy Trinidad. The Vega Baja native did some rounds of pads with Trinidad, then he worked with the punching bag and jumping the rope.

“I’m good at this weight and very happy with the training camp for this fight against Mikey Garcia”, Martinez said after the workout when he step up to the scale and weighed in 132 3/4 pounds. “We have worked hard for this fight and I feel so good and in great shape, just waiting for the day of the fight.”

Martinez, who come off a win over Diego Magdaleno on April in China, will travel to Corpus Christi, Texas, this Monday, November 4, in the morning for his final days of training there.
