“I am more than ready to achieve my goal, the dream of being a world champion. I had a great preparation in Hermosillo with Alfredo Caballero and his great team. I have a commitment to my family, my representatives, my team, friends, the fans and my people that I will leave everything in the ring. I’m already very anxious!”
Zarika is scheduled to arrive on Monday.
