Amir Rudon, Belizean Boxer: “I don’t know too much about Gaspar but I’ve seen a couple of his fights, I’ve watched two of his fights that he did this year and I’ve been studying some films on him just so that could give me an edge come Saturday night. Besides that I feel positive entering this fight. I’ve been training hard, I have a wonderful team around me, good coaches, good sparring partners that keep me sharp each and every single day. I’ve been on point. My weight is good so for the weigh ins I’m just waiting for that to pass and then we get ready for Saturday night.”

Amir Rudon, Belizean Boxer: “This fight I’ll be paying homage and tribute to the Garifuna culture since I’ll be fighting the day before Garifuna Settlement Day. So the fight colors that I’ll be using is black and yellow with white. So those of you who plan on attending the event you know in support of me can wear these same colors as well.”
The athlete added that his confidence comes from the hard work that he has put in his training.
