On Saturday night January 29th at the beautiful Turning Stone Casino and Resort, an important heavyweight bout for the WBC Caribbean Heavyweight title.
Mike Mollo and Manuel Quezada will battle it out for the right to not only win the coveted belt but take another step up the latter to gain a shot for the Heavyweight championship of the world.
Both guys chimed in from training camp to give their thoughts as the bout fast approaches.
Mike Mollo (20-3-1, 12 KO’s)-Oak Lawn, Illinois and training in West Palm Beach, Florida
“I believe this is an even fight. I know that Quezada is a tough and durable guy and with what I bring, it should be a fan friendly fight. I know he fights at a nice pace but I am always picking things up in the gym.”
“I am a young thirty years old and I will be 110 % ready when my time comes. I believe one or two wins and I will be in the thick of things.”
Manuel Quezada (29-6, 18 KO’s-Wasco, California)
“I am very excited for this fight. I took some time off after the Arreola fight. I love this sport so much and I am motivated like never before. I know Mike is a tough guy and I think its going to be a grueling fight”.
“I just go in there and do my thing. I don’t think people take me serious but I can fight. This is a good fight for both of us and the winner should get a good ranking”
