Lightweight Puerto Rican prospect (up to 61.2 kg) Felix Verdejo (27-1-0, 17 KO) has no doubts that he will be able to demonstrate improvements in the upcoming fight with Japanese gatekeeper Masayoshi Nakatani (18-1-0, 12 KO), who will take place on December 12th in Las Vegas.
“I went through a tough camp and worked on my condition, and this is the main thing. I have gained in stamina, no doubt, and I want to maintain my attitude.
I will have a tough opponent, and I have matched sparring partners for him. This time I need to be more aggressive. He is a brave fighter, but I will not let him take my bread.
I consider myself a better fighter than Lopez. Even before meeting him, it was clear that Lomachenko was vulnerable. As he is, in general. So I will surprise him as much as he did Lomachenko, ”said Verdejo.
