Rocky Hernandez Confident Going into Championship Showdown
Confidence is a prerequisite for every fighter aiming to claim a championship title. Junior lightweight sensation Eduardo “Rocky” Hernandez (34-1, 31KO) is oozing self-assurance as he pledges to seize the title in his upcoming clash against WBC champion O’Shaquie “Ice Water” Foster (20-2, 11KO) on October.
FOCUSED ON CAPTURING THE TITLE
The Mexican was in Tijuana, Mexico to support fellow stablemate Angel Fierro, who narrowly defeated unknown Brayan Zamarrippa. While at ringside, Hernandez made it clear that his focus was entirely on his impending battle with Foster.
“I am really thankful and happy and proud that I can represent Mexico, and on the 28 of October, you’re going to see a new world champion. Training is going really well. We are with our training team in Las Vegas, and we are giving absolutely everything in our training for this fight.”
“First let’s take care of this fight . . . we will give it 100% for this fight and then we will see what’s next after speaking to our promoter.”Eduardo Hernandez (translated from Spanish)
Rocky faced defeat at the hands of former WBA Regular champion Roger Gutierrez in 2019. Since then, he has been on an impressive winning streak. He boasts a five-fight knockout streak and most recently dominated Hector Garcia, dispatching him in just three rounds on July 7. Foster, on the other hand, enters the ring with newfound confidence after his unexpected triumph over WBC featherweight champion Rey Vargas in their showdown for the vacant junior lightweight title on February 11.
Adding to the intrigue, Hernandez will have the added motivation of competing on home turf in Cancun, Mexico.
