American ex-contender for the world light welterweight title (up to 63.5 kg) Alex Saucedo (30-1-0, 19 KO), who this Saturday will face prospect-compatriot Arnold Barboza (24-0-0, 10 KO ), believes that the upcoming eliminator will help him rise to the top of the division.
“With or without fans, I am delighted that this meeting will take place. This is a big fight for me, and it will help me get to the top of the division, which I am looking forward to.
The fight will be a WBO qualifier and a lot is at stake. I didn’t lose motivation throughout the entire camp and I already want to put together in the ring what the team and I managed to prepare, ”said Saucedo.
