Here is what Corona had to say about his recent training camp, his upcoming fight with fellow undefeated foe, Pedro Valencia, and more.
On his recent training camp:
“I have been pushed to the limit. This camp has been tireless, this is the moment I have been waiting for, to fight an undefeated fighter and prove to myself and everyone watching that I’m a world class fighter. It’s has been nothing short of exhausting. I am finishing each-and-every workout going hard, only to do it again, day after day. I have never had a camp like this, but I know on fight night I’ll be at my very best.”
On his matchup with Valencia:
“Valencia is a tough fighter who is undefeated for a reason. He had a close fight recently and I’ve seen some holes in his game. You can tell he has power, but I don’t think much of his ring intelligence. He just comes forward and looks to land something big, and that’s it. I am a crafty boxer with a lot of heart. I’m expecting this to be a war. If he underestimates me, he will be in a lot trouble.”
On what a win will do for his career:
“Winning fixes everything. If you win in boxing, even if it is a bad win, you get more chances. I am here to continue my families legacy of greatness in boxing, and I feel a draw in my last fight put some doubt in people’s minds about my potential. Winning this fight puts me in a different place in the sport of boxing.”
On fighting on a Thompson Boxing card in Southern California:
“Thompson Boxing is an L.A. institution that has built a lot of great fighters, and to get a major fight on one of their cards that defines my career, is an honor. I’m an L.A. fighter through and through, and it’s only fitting that I have one of my biggest fights with them with all my fans in attendance.”
