Undefeated junior lightweight sensation – Gabriel Flores Jr. has promised to take down hard-charging Mexican veteran, Luis Alberto Lopez as the two fighters cross sword at the AVA Amphitheater [Casino Del Sol] in Tucson on Friday.

According to Flores Jr. [20-0, 7 KOs] everything at his training camp has really gone on very well and is ready to punish Lopez on fight night:

“Every fight that goes on, I learn. Each fight, I get better and better. It’s a fact. You’re seeing it each fight. This training camp was a long training camp, a longer one because I was supposed to fight on the {Fury-Wilder 3} card, but that got postponed. And now I’m on this card.

“We took a positive out of a negative. We got sharper. The sparring was great and everything. All my confidence comes from my training. I sparred with real good people that helped me out for this fight. Gervonta Davis. Mark Magsayo. {Yuriorkis} Gamboa. So I’m extremely ready.”

“Lopez is going to get knocked out. He’s going to live up to his name. They call him the deer. He’s going to look like Bambi in there.”

“I always look at the big picture. I know who I am. I started off early in the pros. I was 17 fighting, so that was me figuring out who I am. I know who I am. I’m comfortable. He just bit off more than he can chew. Friday night, he’s going to choke.”

Meanwhile, Luis Alberto Lopez [(22-2, 12 KOs] who has won five in a row says he’s going to capitalize on the weaknesses of Flores come Friday:

“It was a great fight that night {against Vences}. Fans that night saw just half of what ‘Venado’ can do. I suffered a fracture in the sixth round, but we got the win. It was a big victory, and I wasn’t 100 percent.”

“He has a lot of flaws. He’s just a kid.”

“There’s a lot of talk, but I have proven I am on this level. He might be a future champion, but I’m here to demonstrate I’m on this level, too.”
