Welterweight Prospect Ivan Najera


Top Rank welterweight prospect Ivan Najera fights Saturday the 15th in San Antonio, Texas. He took a few minutes to answer five questions with Texas Sports Review.

What is are something you are working on improving in the ring?

I’m really becoming more intelligent when I’m in the ring. Smart boxing I can last longer in the game.  Also I and my team have really been working on my weight and we hired a nutritionist for our camp for this bout Saturday. I feel great and my weight is spot on.

You turned pro before you were old enough to even drink. Why was that?

My style was more suited for the professional levels and not suited for the amateurs. The way the judges score in the amateurs is just too different from the pros. Judges and fans like my pro style!

 What can we expect from you in 2015?

Good question. If anything I would say more exposure bigger fights. My fight Saturday fans can expect to be entertained.

What is the biggest fight you want to see in 2015?

I would have to say Cotto versus Canelo. Experience versus youth is a fight I’m looking forward to next year.
