Cesar Francis: “I’m naturally a 140, my body is telling me I’m a 140-pounder. I overcame the nutritional issues from last fight and I feel stronger than ever and that was reflective in how I weighed in.
“I respect Saracho as a fighter, but I don’t respect the levels of the guys on his resume, but I know he’s a really live opponent, so for more reasons than one, I have to be on my A game.
“Juan Manuel Marquez told me that I was able to adjust and navigate Ray Beltran’s tricks and those rounds made me a more seasoned fighter. I’ve taken real tests early in my career like Mimmoune, I did things the old school way, and hopefully that pays dividends when I get a fight against Barboza Jr or even Teofimo Lopez in a battle of Brooklyn.”
