Romero ready for IBF title clash

On Saturday Colombian super bantamweight Jonathan Romero (22-0, 12 KOs) will look to solidify his position in the world of boxing by taking on Mexico’s Alejandro Lopez (24-2, 7 KOs) in a 12 round war for the IBF super bantamweight title at the Auditorio Municpal located in Tijuana, Mexico and will be televised on UniMas’s Solo Boxeo (Formerly Telefutura) at 11:30pm ET/PT.

Romero’s promoter Thompson Boxing Promotions distributed the following quotes from Romero:

“I have worked in Colombia and for the last five weeks in Los Angeles and I have gotten the appropriate sparring. I can adapt better to my opponent. I’m physically in top condition and I’m excited about the possibility of becoming a world champion because Colombia currently doesn’t have one. This is world title fight and I have prepared properly physically and mentally. I have to take it to him not only because of his style but also for the fact that he is fighting in his own town. I have not only worked on my attributes inside the ring but also my head game to make sure that I can get the results that I want.”

“I have seen video footage of him and I know what he can do. I know what he is capable of but based on my experience inside the ring it is a completely different story. I am not concerned about what he does but more so about what I will do to get that championship title.”

“His main weakness is that he is fighting me, “Momo” Romero. A lot of the guys that I have fought have never seen experienced anyone like me and he will feel the same way that night. I am known for my movement and my ring generalship. Take my word for it. I am going to take it to him. I have been given the opportunity to fight for a world title and my mission is to do what ever it takes to get it. I’m ready for this. Colombia is ready for this. My team has prepared me. I just have to seize the moment.”
