“I’m ready. I’m waiting for the last few days to pass, so the people can enjoy a good fight. I feel good. Logically, there’s a change of altitude [in Las Vegas], but that’s what we’ve prepared for, I’m ready for the fight. I think I’ve made a good preparation and I enjoy what I do. It’s a sacrifice and you have to know how to do it – with Don Nacho and with my uncle I was able to focus on what I should have done after the Martinez fight, and here are the results.”
