“I’m eager to show everyone what I can do live on FOX Deportes. Hermosillo won’t be an easy opponent, but I’m geared up for this clash. My last fight’s outcome was a disappointment, but this time, I’m determined to deliver a performance that won’t leave any room for debate. I’ll bring my A-game to Hermosillo and use this national platform on FOX Deportes to its fullest. Victory is the only option.”
“Being 18, I’m on the brink of establishing my name in the boxing world. My dedication in the gym is known to all, and this preparation period has been just as rigorous. I’m on a quest to shine on FOX Deportes, especially with my Long Beach supporters watching. I respect Benitez’s capabilities, but I’ve got a strategy for everything he might throw. Everyone will witness pure passion and determination.”
Levy Garcia Benitez:
“My moment to dazzle on FOX Deportes is here, and I’m thrilled it’s against Moreno in his turf. My training has been top-notch, and I’m poised to demonstrate its results. I aim to highlight Moreno’s vulnerabilities and ensure there’s no question about who stands superior. I represent my folks from Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico, and I’ll make them proud.”
“My training for the clash with Roberto Patron has been top-tier. The buzz about showcasing my talents on FOX Deportes has me amped up. I respect Patron’s undefeated record, but the grind I’ve put into this training? It’s bound to manifest in the ring. I’m eyeing a knockout finish, eager to bask in the limelight and give viewers a clash to remember.”
“I’ve invested everything into this training, ensuring I’m in my prime form. It’s time to exhibit my skills and potential. I know Juan Sanchez is a force, but these are the moments I’ve trained my entire life for. I’m keen to provide a spectacle for the audience and make the most of this spotlight on FOX Deportes. It’s a crucial chapter in my journey, and I’m set to own it.”
