GM Ross caught up with bantamweight Antonio “Carita” Nieves who is back in action this weekend!
On Saturday, September 5, bantamweight standout Antonio “Carita” Nieves (12-0-1, 6KOs) of Cleveland, Ohio, makes his much anticipated ring return against Korea’s Tae Woong Jung (3-2-2, 3KOs) for eight rounds or less at the Presque Isle Downs Casino in Erie, Pennsylvania. The fight is part of a big nine bout card organized by Bizzarro Promotions. Recently, Fightfan.com had the pleasure of interviewing Nieves to get his thoughts on Tae Wong Jung, training camp, and his June draw with fellow undefeated prospect Stephon Young (14-0-2, 6KOs).
GM Ross (GMR): Thanks for doing this Antonio! First of all, can you tell us a bit about training camp? Who has been helping you prepare for this fight?
Antonio Nieves (AN): No problem, anytime! Well, this training camp went extremely well. We did everything that we had to do to be in the best shape possible for whatever type of fight my opponent brings to the table. We sparred several people during this camp but the person that we sparred the most and helped me out a lot was Chase Nelson out of Mansfield, OH.
