Soto (52-7-2, 32 KOs) of Los Mochis Sinola, who defends his WBC lightweight title against Fidel Monterrosa (23-1, 18 KOs) of Colombia, stated that he is well prepared and will be victorious.

Monterrosa commented that he respects Soto, but it will be he who will have his arm raised.

Arce (55-6-1, 42 KOs) of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, who takes on former world champion Lorenzo “Lencho” Parra (31-2, 18 KOs) of Venezuela in a 12 round WBO junior featherweight elimination bout, said his bout against Parra will be tough but he’s ready to win.

Parra stated he’ll take the KO if it comes, but he’s prepared to go the distance to win.

Chávez Carrasco (23-0-1, 16 KOs) of Culiacan, Sinaloa will have a rematch with Rodrigo Juarez (15-11-1, 11 KOs) of Tijuana. They met a couple of months back with Chavez getting the nod on a very close fight.
