Here is what Eros had to say about training camp, Arredondo, and more:
On his recent training camp
“I spent the first month of camp in Las Vegas with Bob Santos, training and sparring with the Barrientes Twins (Angel and Chavez) and a few others. When my fight got pushed back, I finished off camp in my hometown of San Jose and got good work with Victor Pasillas and some other top fighters in the Bay Area. My coach Martin Nunez, who has been with me since I turned professional, is making sure I’m peaking on fight night. It’s been a long camp, and I’m in the best shape of my life.”

“I know he’s a solid fighter with a lot of power. We’ve sparred before, so I know what I need to do to be victorious. This, by far, will be the toughest fight of my career. We are both undefeated, so fans can expect to see two warriors giving it their all. When the final scorecards are read, I believe my hands will be raised in victory.”
On making his PBC televised debut
“This is the turning point in my career being that it’s my televised PBC debut on FS1. I’m in the prime of my career, and I’ll be at my best. I’m going to make this fight a war by bringing a lot of pressure, making it a fan-friendly fight.”
On what a win will do for his career
“A victory against Arredondo will put me in a position to climb up the rankings. Also, a win will allow me to fight back on PBC. I know what is at stake, and I’m not cutting any corners. I’m going to get this win and march toward my dream of becoming a world champion.”
