Puerto Rican welterweight puncher (up to 63.5 kg) Sabriel Matias (16-1-0, 16 KO), who stopped American prospect Malik Hawkins (18-1-0, 11 KO) ahead of schedule on Saturday, announced that he was ready to play in the qualifying duel.
“The difference between this performance and defeat [в бою с Петросом Ананяном] is how I prepared. Before that fight, I didn’t train as much as I should have. Malik didn’t have the strength to shake me, and I realized this in the opening round.
I’m ready for everyone. Whoever is put in front of me, I will do my job. Now I would like to fight in a qualifying fight, and then go to the title, “- said Matthias.
