Below is what the fighters had to say at today’s workout:
JOSEPH DIAZ JR., Undefeated Featherweight Contender:
“It’s a dream come true, and I am so blessed by God to be living in Los Angeles, where I’ve had more opportunities than elsewhere. This fight has the potential to open a lot of doors for me if I get that title. My opponent is very durable, and he’s strong, but I’m very focused and my training camp has been dedicated to make sure we bring a great performance.
“I feel like I am in the spotlight right now so I need to keep on working hard and improving and progressing. I use that a motivation every single day when I wake up.
“I’m looking to land some vicious body shots during this fight.
“I’m the next big thing in my weight class and I want to take care of business.”
RAFEAL GRAMAJO, Super Bantamweight Prospect:
“I love boxing. I am someone who can adapt to any opponents fighting skills, and I train not just physically but emotionally. I don’t have to study other fighters because I know that I can prepare enough to psych them out.”
