Puerto Rican welterweight puncher (up to 63.5 kg) Sabriel Matias (16-1-0, 16 KO), preparing today in California to compete for the title of the IBF mandatory challenger with undefeated Kazakhstani Batyr Dzhukembaev (18-0-0, 14 KO) , spoke about the recent fight for the title of undisputed champion of the division between the British Josh Taylor and the American Jose Ramirez.
“I was not surprised by the result. To be honest, Ramirez performed even better than I expected. Josh Taylor is a great fighter, and if one day I get the opportunity to fight him, the facts will speak for themselves.
But now I cannot talk about the future. I promised to defeat my opponent, and at the moment I am focused only on Dzhukembaev. It is like a pebble in a boot, and I need to get rid of it, ”said the fighter.
