“It’s a tough fight,” Baranchyk admitted in an interview with The Ring. “He’s a tough opponent, but I’m ready to fight anyone. I don’t think the odds are 50/50, I’m confident in myself.
I will break it down [смеется]… I will break him closer to the middle of the fight with my pressure. After defeating Zepeda, I expect to go to [Хосе Карлоса] Ramirez “.
