“I just beat two undefeated fighters back-to-back so I’m coming into this fight with a lot of momentum and confidence,” said Saracho. “Zania is a tough Mexican fighter from Tijuana, so I know it’s going to be a tough fight. I have every intention of knocking him out so fans can expect to see me throw a lot of big shots. This fight will be an all-out war.”
“Against Saracho, I will have to be at my very best because I know he has a lot of power and has beat some good fighters. But I’m undefeated for a reason and it’s going to stay that way. I have all the skills to beat him on the inside or outside. I too have power that he’s going to have to deal with. I don’t see this fight going the distance and my hands will be raised in victory.”
